0 Have your say National broadcaster Channel 4 hopes to act as a ‘catalyst’ for more jobs in Yorkshire’s creative sector when the organisation moves its headquarters to Leeds next year. Ewan Douglas, agency principal at Channel 4, told The Yorkshire Post that the broadcaster’s move will be “transformative” for the city.
