She was subsequently Head of Policy (1987–1992) and then Director of Policy and Planning (1993–2000), a position on the main board. As Director of Policy and Planning she played a key role in many initiatives, including the original concept for BBC Prime and what was then BBC World, now BBC World News.

After unsuccessfully standing for both Chairman and Vice Chairman, Hodgson stood down from the BBC Trust in June 2011 to take up a role on the board of media regulator Ofcom, where she will become Deputy Chairman.[6] Honours Hodgson was made a CBE in 1995 and a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 2004.
