The BBC is set to cut over 139 jobs across BBC Local Radio in a bid to save £25Mil for BBC England before 2022. Shows have been said to continue as ‘one presenter only’.

As well as the standardised shows 6-10am, 10am-2pm and 2-6pm seven days a week, there will be a new all-England Weekday and Weekend Late Show and shared regional programming between 6pm and 10pm on Sundays. BBC Local Radio is one of the only stations left to provide local programming, with commercial stations just being broadcasted in London. We NEED to keep this LOCAL service, LOCAL, for as long as we can. 

“Proposed reduction of 325 jobs as a result of restructuring across BBC England’s TV radio and online services, with a further 125 posts to be lost through voluntary redundancy. The proposals show 8 posts being lost in the Central Engineering Team, 7 through the changes to GNS and 139 from the simplified Local Radio schedules.”

Please sign and Save BBC Local Radio.
