“Channel 4 has shortlisted cities including Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Liverpool and Leeds to compete to become the home of the broadcaster’s new second “national” headquarters.”
West Midlands mayor Andy Street, the former John Lewis boss, said he was pleased his region had overcome the “first hurdle” in the bidding process. The West Midlands has been selected as a candidate for the national HQ or a creative hub.
“This was the first hurdle we needed to overcome,” said Street. “Now the hard work really starts as we begin negotiations in earnest to develop the most compelling case possible to the broadcaster.”
