Leeds and Leeds City Region have been shortlisted for Channel 4 national headquarters along with Bristol, Cardiff and Glasgow. Those that did not make it onto the final shortlist are Liverpool, Stoke on Trent and Coventry after falling short at the second stage of the selection process, which involved presentations, discussions and Q&A sessions.
Jonathan Allan, Channel 4's chief commercial officer, said: “Our visits to the 13 shortlisted cities over the last month were incredibly inspiring and I’d like to thank all of those involved for the huge amounts of creativity they demonstrated and the excitement for Channel 4 and what we could achieve together.
“We have again had to take some very difficult decisions on which cities to take forward to the next stage, but we believe the six cities we have selected are best able to deliver against our vision and requirements for the new National HQ and Creative Hubs.
