NUJ members sign motion of no confidence in BBC
In brief

Members of The National Union of Journalists have signed a motion of no confidence in the senior management of BBC England and the Director of Nations over local radio cost-cutting plans.

The letter to BBC director general Tim Davie expresses concerns at current plans which “effectively spell the end of BBC Local Radio” with the prospect of redundancies and shared programming.

“Please listen to the 5.7 million local radio listeners and the politicians who want local radio to be protected. Don’t go down in history as the director general who killed off local radio. Please keep local radio local.”
