English Regions "Reinvented"
Jan 16th, 2019, 3:54pm
The BBC Media Centre announces "Major changes" to services across England.

The Media Centre statement........

" The BBC will “reinvent and refresh” its offer in England - including BBC local radio and regional TV news - to ensure it is providing the best possible services to all audiences across the country.
Plans announced today include the launch of an exciting digital platform aimed at young audiences in England and a simplified leadership structure across the country as the BBC seeks to improve its offer to English audiences.

The changes include:-

The Social, the award-winning online platform created by BBC Scotland viewed by millions of online users each week, will be expanded into England, giving young people an opportunity to create content for the BBC.

Continuing the work already underway to reinvent Local Radio so it owns local conversations, fully reflects the diverse communities it serves and becomes the front-door for new talent into the BBC, uncovering and nurturing the broadcasting stars of tomorrow.

A new approach to content commissioning for TV and online; exploring opportunities to create more content for English audiences by working with other parts of the BBC.

The leadership of BBC England will be reworked to a structure based around platforms rather than geography. A Head of News and Head of TV Commissioning will be appointed alongside the Head of Audio and Digital with an overall reduction in the number of senior managers. "

Director of BBC England is Helen Thomas.
