Alan Yentob has weaseled out of censure over allegations that he interfered with the BBC's coverage of the collapse of Kids Company, after quitting his executive role before Auntie's governing body could launch an independent investigation into the claims.
Yentob, who chaired the failed charity, said that he had decided to step down from his £183,000 creative director post at the end of this year, because of the “serious distraction” caused by claims that he had tried to influence the output of the BBC’s news programmes. He will retain his position as host of Imagine, the arts strand, for which he thought to be paid around £150,000 a year.
The Telegraph understands that Yentob had been warned that the BBC Trust was on the brink of announcing an inquiry into his behaviour.
