Gary Anderson and Jennie Gow are the BBC’s newest employees for its 2012 F1 reporting, duo taking up individual technical and reporter positions. F1 reporters published that Ben Edwards would be the channel’s lead commentator, with former ITV man James Allen another respected personality to reveal that he will be joining the team last week, as a member of BBC Radio 5 live.
“I’m thrilled to be joining the BBC F1 team,” Edwards said. “It’s a dream come true to be broadcasting from grands prix all over the world with such a prestigious broadcaster and such a talented group of people. My first stint as commentator coincided with David Coulthard’s first season in F1 as a driver, so I am relishing the opportunity to work with him now in conveying the drama, excitement and passion that is wrapped up in each and every event.
“The prospects for the 2012 season are tremendous, with Lewis Hamilton out for revenge, Ferrari determined to give Fernando Alonso a car worthy of him and Sebastian Vettel attempting to become only the third driver in history to score a hat-trick of titles.”
Meanwhile, Anderson, who worked as a F1 technical director over a 13 year period, has signed up as a technical analyst.
