The BBC Media Centre has an item from the Director of Digital, BBC News, Naja Nielson.
Here it is.

Well after a couple of months of the changes to news channels it is plain to see that domestic news is the biggest loser , what we now have is effectively world TV with a splattering of domestic news when necessary. While Nicky Campbells radio show may be popular it makes lousy TV viewing. It is a great shame after decades of building up a news channel audience to just let it all go , audience figures are down on where they were before the changes. A couple of questions, were the public consulted about the changes ? and why should UK license fee payers pay for a world TV channel that is predominantly aimed at the international audience ?

I think we need to blame the government first and foremost for deliberately emasculating BBC News and its finances. But I agree the new 24-hour set-up is an unhappy mish-mash which must be better thought-through and managed. People like me will turn to Sky in their droves.

I already find I'm viewing Sky News more often. GB News offers a different slant on the news.

I used to enjoy the countdown to the top of the hour, with the catchy theme tune and the clock in the corner.

Sometimes it started from 80 seconds and that made my day!

Now the clock is bigger and right in your face in the centre, it's my cue to switch over to Sky News...
