Stephen Carter - the former MD and COO of NTL - is in line for a top job at the new monster communications regulator, OFCOM.

According to the Mail on Sunday he is due to be named chief exec of OFCOM later this week.

If his appointment gets the go-ahead he will join Lord Currie, who was named chairman of the new media/telecoms regulator earlier this year.

Mr Carter quit the cableco in November last year.

He said his decision to go was a personal one prompted by the fact that NTL president and CEO, Barclay Knapp, would be taking over the day-to-day running of the UK business once the cableco emerges from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Ofcom is due to replace five telecoms and media regulatory authorities, including Oftel, later this year once the Communications Bill becomes law. ®
