GMG to commission more docs

GMG Radio is set to commission its next wave of independent productions, as part of a one million pounds programming initiative across Smooth, Real, Century and Rock Radio.

GMG says research into listeners’ views and opinions on the special programmes was extremely positive and is now inviting independent production companies to pitch new ideas for broadcast on its network of 13 stations. The new commissions will be broadcast from January 2009.

GMG Radio’s £1 million programming initiative has been led by GMG Radio chief executive John Myers and funded by Guardian Media Group’s owner the Scott Trust.

GMG Radio group programme director, John Simons, said: “The response from listeners to the wide array of programmes we have brought to the commercial airwaves has been overwhelmingly positive, and demonstrates that our audiences enjoy new and unexpected content. So I am delighted to announce that we will be investing further in new documentaries, commissioning more programmes for broadcast early next year.”
