Has it been mentioned here how they are changing BBC Local Radio
All stations are doing fixed length 4 hour shows 6-10, 10-2, 2-6, 6-10 & then the late Show 10-1. This basically means no early breakfast, one less daytime show, and also changes to the evening output.
Yep and also removing double headed presenting. Overnight local radio and 5 Live will carry Radio London's overnight shows, which were going to be axed soon but seem to have had a reprieve. One of them is Dotun Adubeyo who already does 5 Live overnight at weekends
Presumably the idea behind the standardised schedule is to make it easier to share programmes should one station not be able to broadcast one because of staff shortages
