TLRC to scrap network shows

Major changes are set to re-shape The Local Radio Company following the appointment of Jason Bryant as managing director of TLRC's local radio division. These include the closure of its head office and the return of local programming.

Some head office staff at 11 Duke Street will make the move with Mix 107 to share studio and office space with Mix 96 in Aylesbury, others will be made redundant, according to a [link=]Brand Republic[/link] report.

Bryant said: "It is good news for our local radio businesses, because each local site director will have more autonomy to run their businesses.

"It makes sense for these localised businesses to control all the functions of their stations. What doesn't make sense is to retain a huge corporate function at the centre."

The report also says TLRC will be reviewing its ownership of stations in the North West to improve its presence in the area. TLRC fully owns two stations – Silk FM and 2BR – and has a major shareholding in Abbey FM and 107 The Bee.

Just last week, Richard Wheatly stepped down from his board position as Chairman of the company, and it's expected more will be announced shortly.
