Stop the BBC from merging Local Radio with 5Live

The BBC is considering merging 5Live with Local Radio. Only Breakfast and Drive programs would be truly local, everything else would networked. Trade unionists at the BBC fear that the proposals would lead to at least 700 job losses, as well as decimating the BBC’s service to local areas.

NUJ General Secretary Jeremy Dear said: “Local radio plays a crucial role in keeping local communities informed. These proposals would rip the heart out of local programming and effectively sound the death knell for local radio.”
