EXCLUSIVE: Jon Snow & Those BBC Rumours

Jon Snow has contacted me to deny rumours circulating on Popbitch and in the Comments section of THIS post earlier that he is to leave Channel 4 News for pastures anew at the BBC. He told me exclusively this afternoon...

"Popbitch has just discovered a piece of information - 22 years old. The then editor of BBC news, Tony Hall, met me in a Japanese restaurant in the bowels of the Hilton hotel and offered me an equally subterranean job on the lunchtime news." He added: "The BBC would die rather than ever hire me."

I think that's fairly clear then.
