Stupid Q: why are there not using the existing staff?


Oh, because they have existing jobs. Plus the announcer job is much more than announcing what’s up next and when something has gone wrong. In theory they coordinate the output of the channel/nation/region. I can’t remember the exact job title it was advertised with, but it was more than “continuity announcer”.

Edit: found the advert - https://careerssearch.bbc.co.uk/jobs/job/Presentation-AnnouncerDirector-Announcer-CPF/29974

But if they are closing BBC Two Scotland, the Director/Announcer who would have been running that service would be available to run the new BBC Scotland?

So the job advert may simply be to replace a member of the existing team who is leaving, or similar.
Write that down in your copybook now.

Yes, just as they always do as people come and go.

It could well be also that even though BBC Scotland will only be in for 6 or so hours a day rather than Two Scotlands's 12 or so, there'll be more work to do as its a stand alone channel rather than opt outs of a network. There'll be more schedule to prep and more announcements to script
