Pidgin Switch-ON
Aug 21st, 2017, 7:54pm
 
NiemanLab covers the 'biggest expansion of the BBC World Service in more than 70 years".

The first new service is BBC Pidgin.

"Locally staffed and with the spoken nature of the language in mind, BBC Pidgin’s offerings include minute-long audio news updates and daily news videos."

More information here from NiemanLab, and from the BBC Media Centre here.

"Director-General of the BBC Tony Hall says: “Today marks the start of a new chapter for the BBC. "

Could make a sly remark about some of the voices on the domestic radio and televison services today. But I won't.
