LONDON, Nov 22 (Reuters) - The new director-general of BBC is to be the current chief executive of the Royal Opera House, Tony Hall, BBC television news said on Thursday.

Hall, a former chief executive of BBC news, will replace George Entwistle who resigned earlier this month after failing to get to grips with a child sex abuse scandal that has thrown the 90-year-old state-funded broadcaster into turmoil.
