BBC News And World Service To Remain Independent But Face Budget Cuts | TV News
There is no progress without a certain degree of pain. The BBC News Channel and World News service are to face 10% cuts to their budget after the corporation deciding not to merge the two operations. BBC director general, Tony Hall, confirmed that the News Channel would remain a standalone service, however, News boss James Harding said when addressing staff that both channels would be expected to find significant savings.
“Although there are strong arguments in favour of running a single news channel, we concluded that this would not be the best way of offering a UK audience and global audiences the news agenda that is most directly relevant to them”.
“During the work on all the options, including the proposal for a single channel, we recognised opportunities for working more efficiently, and we face tough financial challenges, so we will aim to make efficiency savings of up to 10% on both channels”.
