ITV has appointed Angela Jain, previously head of E4, as its director of digital channels and acquisitions. She takes the role vacated by Zai Bennett, who left ITV to become controller of BBC Three.
Peter Fincham, director of television at ITV, said in a statement: “Angela has a very impressive background in finding hot new talent, having an eye for acquisitions that create a real buzz and delivering returning favourites time and time again.
Jain will report into director of programme strategy, David Bergg, and will be responsible for the programming on ITV2, ITV3, ITV4 and CITV. Jain added: “This is undoubtedly an exciting time to be joining ITV. ITV2, 3 and 4 are already some of the most watched digital channels in the UK and I can’t wait to take the helm and work with Peter, David and their hugely talented team to build on this success.”
