As talks about Liscence fee price freeze as the government look to a new model of how the BBC is funded. Will see the politics of the BBC funding radio as budget cuts are looking possible at the same time Newsbeat and Asian Network moving to Birmingham and 6 Music and Radio 3 moving all their programming, production and management to Salford.

Creating this as a general conversation threads sharing any news and views as this develops and impacts BBC Radio and BBC Sound and how commercial radio sector responds

With announcements for today wonder what this means for future generations of BBC 

with…

  • Plans to accelerate digital growth in audio and drive listeners to BBC Sounds, simplifying schedules and cancelling shows that do not deliver;
     
  • Changes in local radio and regional news to ensure high-quality, distinctive BBC local journalism is available every day when and where audiences want it;
  • Plans to accelerate digital growth in audio and drive listeners to BBC Sounds, simplifying schedules and cancelling shows that do not deliver;

wonder what in the longterm it will affect BBC’s Radio output would be affected. Quite possibly some changes to youth news content in the shake-up. Even there’s nothing about newsbeat in it but wonder how this will change BBC’s youth programming etc

Kind of think maybe on BBC Two as they often re-run competition shows, game shows and light entertainment that have already been played. Do hope that there’s consideration for maybe featuring stuff like newsround, bitesize stuff and educational-entertainment stuff for more school aged children in those slots
