    BBC chairman resigns over loan to Boris Johnson



    BBC chairperson Richard Sharp testifying in front of a Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Committee in London on February 7, 2023.

    BBC chairman Richard Sharp on Friday, April 28, announced his resignation after an inquiry found he had breached rules for failing to declare his involvement in arranging a loan for then-prime minister Boris Johnson.

    Sharp was involved in securing a private credit line for up to £800,000 for Johnson from a Canadian businessman.

    “I feel that this matter may well be a distraction from the Corporation’s good work were I to remain in post until the end of my term,” said Sharp, who was formerly a boss of current premier Rishi Sunak at Goldman Sachs.
