Coronation Street producers, on average, last a couple of years. If that trend is still current, then it's just about time for a change at the top.
There's a list on Wikipedia of all of the Coronation Street producers and their length of tenure in the post. There's also a good write-up of Stuart Blackburn's time at the top on Corriepedia too.
Stuart Blackburn took on the role of producer of our favourite soap in April 2013. He's had more than two years in the hot seat now and I wonder if Corrie are casting the net yet for someone new?
When it was announced in October 2012 that Mr Blackburn was taking over at Coronation Street after his stint on Emmerdale, I posted a question over at Digital Spy. I asked Emmerdale fans what we could expect. Their replies make interesting reading.
Who would you - yes, you reading this - like to see take over as Coronation Street Producer? Is there anyone who's already been in the role that you would welcome back? Whose name would make your heart sing if you saw it in a news report as the new Corrie producer?
