Tony Hall gave BBC stability but failed to see digital crisis ahead

When Tony Hall was appointed director general in 2013, he was given the task of steadying a BBC that had been seriously rocked by its handling of the Jimmy Savile and Lord McAlpine scandals. Unflappable in a crisis and with a strong track record as a journalist, Hall is popular among the BBC news team. - www.theguardian.com

Four big issues the new BBC director general will find in their in-tray

Whoever replaces Tony Hall as director general of the BBC will have to hit the ground running as the corporation braces for another fight with the government over licence fee funding, the still-unfolding scandal over unequal pay and the exodus of young viewers in the Netflix-era of streaming TV. 1. The issue is particularly acute among younger audiences, with the BBC admitting that under-24-year-olds spend more time on Netflix in a week than all of BBC TV, including iPlayer, despite the latter's relative popularity with younger viewers. - www.theguardian.com
