After six and a half years with British broadcaster UKTV, Jane Rogerson (pictured) is leaving her post as director of commissioning.

Rogerson joined UKTV in 2007 as director of commissioning for factual and factual entertainment and – following her 2009 promotion to director of commissioning for UKTV’s entire network of 10 channels - is credited with transforming the broadcaster into a significant content commissioner.

She helped build a roster of shows that now includes Choccywoccydoodah; Dynamo: Magician ImpossibleRed Dwarf X; and Fry and Laurie Reunited.

Prior to joining UKTV, Rogerson held positions including controller of features for ITV, creative director at Mentorn, producer for BBC Documentaries’ Rough Justice series, and commissioning editor for BBC Newsnight.

Her replacement has not yet been announced.

“After over six years it’s time for a new adventure, and I wish everyone at and connected with UKTV the very best for the next chapter in the company’s history,” said Rogerson in a statement.

UKTV CEO Darren Childs added: “Jane has made a huge contribution to UKTV’s original content output which has transformed UKTV’s reputation and success as a business, for which both I, and the company, owe a debt of gratitude.”
