BBC Northern Ireland has appointed longtime executive Emma Dunseith to head of content production.

Dunseith (pictured) takes over the role from Eddie Doyle, who was upped to head of content commissioning for the pubcaster in September.

She will play a key role in the delivery of content across all in-house production outside of news and current affairs, including factual, entertainment, sports, music and events.

Reporting to BBC Northern Ireland director Peter Johnston, Dunseith will provide editorial leadership for the company’s teams across television, radio and digital.

In her current role of executive editor of Arts, Music and Learning, Dunseith has been responsible for all in-house television and radio coverage.

She joined the BBC more than two decades ago and has worked in news, online, learning, arts and factual television.

Her career began with BBC Northern Ireland as a broadcast assistant in the newsroom. She has also worked as a tri-media producer in Learning and Interactive, as well as a senior producer in Knowledge and Learning, where she produced The Arts Show and factual in-house documentaries.
