Mentorn Media has confirmed Hayley Valentine as its new director of current affairs.

Valentine is joining from BBC Scotland where she has been executive editor at Question Time. Based in Glasgow, she will continue to oversee the programme for Mentorn as well as BBC One’s The Big Questions and continuing the growth of Mentorn’s current affairs output across all broadcasters. 
Chief executive of Mentorn Media, John Willis, said: “Hayley is the perfect person to head up Mentorn’s current affairs programming. She has extensive knowledge and experience and we are delighted she will be responsible for developing even more programming from our ever-expanding Glasgow office.”

Before becoming BBC executive editor of Question Time, Valentine held several positions within the BBC including head of News for BBC Radio 5 Live and assistant editor on Breakfast TV. Hayley has also worked for Scottish Television and commercial radio since she began her career as a journalist in Scotland.

Valentine said: “I’ve been on the receiving end of the impressive editorial work that Mentorn has produced and I look forward to maintaining that level of commitment to BBC programming as well as developing new and engaging formats across all broadcasters.”
