Her Channel ITN CEO Rachel Corp paid tribute to “one of the most talented editorial minds to have ever worked across ITN.” “It’s hard to think of another

person who has had so much influence across the business,” she added. “Under his leadership ITN divisions have devised and delivered ground-breaking ideas and programmes that have

gone on to win multiple awards and accolades.” Shaw, who leaves in March to “pursue other media interests and artistic challenges,” said: “I’ve enjoyed a career packed

with amazing stories and experiences.  I don’t think any other production company can offer the sheer variety and quality of content we get to make here”. Shaw joined

the outfit in 1985 to work on ITV News and left briefly to help launch Sky News before returning as Channel 4 News Home and Foreign News Editor.
