Every Local BBC Radio Presenter Has Been Put at Risk of Redundancy
New BBC Proposals
A Major Blow to Local Radio
Every presenter working at every local BBC radio station has been put at risk of redundancy under new proposals at the corporation. In a recent staff meeting, all audio teams at 39 stations were told further details of drastic plans announced. All Band E Lead Presenters, Band D Senior Presenters, Band C and B Presenters, Band C Journalists and Content Producers, Band B Journalism Coordinators and more are now at risk of redundancy.
These include high-profile breakfast show personalities, long-serving networked night-time hosts, and weekend presenters. They will all need to apply for new roles to become such as Presenter/Producer, News Reader, Reporter, Programme Producer, Social Media Journalist, Sports Journalist, and more, if they wish to remain in a job, or go through a selection for retention scheme. Take a look at some of the proposals, schematics and reactions at the website, below:
