I know that some people will be disappointed at the axing of Inside Out, but the previous 30 min investigative programmes that used to be on BBC Two in the past, such as First Sight which used to go out in the old South East region were of high quality in comparison.
The Sunday regional political shows have been saved as well as Breakfast bulletins, so I think they made the least worst decision.
What happens with the older veteran presenters will be a minefield. They will be on the highest salaries so it would be a big saving, but it’ll cost a fortune to make them redundant, and many will be retiring before long anyway. But there will be lots of bad press if they make someone so popular in the region redundant.
Peter Levy must be in that bracket, he's been on Look North since the 80s (in Leeds of course, prior to Hull's launch). I wonder if any single headed regions will lose their current presenters?
