We know BBC News has to make big cuts due to BBC taking on board the over 75s free licence fees from the Government as of now.
Neil Henderson, who tweets #tomorrowspaperstoday, in addition to his News planning day job, tweeted tonight he is at threat of redundancy as are others. Just before Christmas.
Does anyone know any more about the extent of this next wave of cuts? If that's what it is. I seem to remember the last set of cuts happened around April 2017 when Maxine Mawhinney, Gavin Esler and others left.
What with equal pay issues and a perception on social media that BBC is behind on breaking Brexit investigative stories (Facebook scandal, Cambridge Analytica), now doesn't seem a good time to cut news staffing. Though I accept the funding just isn't there right now.
