BBC promotes Morning Live Editor


The BBC has announced that Morning Live Editor, Emma Morris will now also oversee The One Show.

Morris becomes Executive Editor of both magazine shows, to ensure “a strong synergy” and so that teams can continue to work together and share resources.

She originally started at The One Show in 2020, before launching Morning Live and handling its move to Manchester.

Prior to that she was at ITV Daytime as Acting Editor of Loose Women and Deputy Editor of This Morning.

The changes come following Rob Unsworth’s promotion to become BBC Head of Daytime and Early Peak commissioning. His role as The One Show Editor has been taken by Joanne Vaughan-Jones, its Executive Producer of Special Events.

Vaughan-Jones has been at the BBC for over 20 years, working on Watchdog, Panorama Rough Traders, Stargazing Live and Crimewatch Roadshow.

She’ll take up her role in January and will report in to Morris.

“Jo has been a huge asset for The One Show for almost three years. She’s incredibly creative and instinctively understands the needs of its audience,” said Hannah Wyatt, BBC Studios Productions Managing Director for Factual Entertainment and Events.

“I’m also delighted that Emma will now oversee both titles, bringing the full weight of her vast broadcast journalism and production nous in live and factual TV to bear across the topical daily portfolio.”

Rob Unsworth, BBC’s Head of BBC Daytime and Early Peak commissioning added:

“Jo’s brilliant creativity and passion has led to some of The One’s Show’s biggest and most memorable moments over the last few years. The One Show and Morning Live are hugely important shows for BBC One, and I’m thrilled to see such a strong team at the helm of both.”
