Chair's statement More than one side to every story
40 years on from its creation, Channel 4’s role has never been more vital to the UK, as it delivers a unique public service for viewers, invests hundreds of millions of pounds into the creative economy and supports tens of thousands of jobs across the UK.
Entirely self-financed, Channel 4 generates all of its income through commercial activities, funding the delivery of its public remit and enabling it to commission all of its programmes from hundreds of the best independent producers across the UK.
I joined Channel 4 in April this year and I have been delighted by the organisation’s laser focus on delivering a public service and spreading opportunity across the country, both on and off screen and throughout its supply chain. Channel 4 is levelling up the creative sector, creating new jobs and opportunities for all across the UK.
