ITV topper tapped for Edinburgh fest

World Brief

ITV topper Charles Allen will give the keynote address at this year’s Edinburgh TV Festival, running Aug. 25-27.

Allen is expected to talk about the future of the battling ITV operation in his first MacTaggart Lecture, one of Brit TV’s most important speaking opportunities.
