Job cuts expected at Radio City

Staff at Radio City in Liverpool are fearful of losing their jobs after Ofcom's recent agreement to allow City Talk to cut the amount of speech on the station.

The station, which launched 16 months ago, has been given the all clear to limit 100 per cent speech only to peak times, along with a late night phone-in. And whilst speech will still be a large part of the output at other times, it is expected fewer producers and journalists will be required.

"With great reluctance, Radio City has entered into consultation with a small number of staff regarding a proposal to re-shape the business," a spokesperson told

"The external environment remains challenging and we, in line with many in the sector, are continually investigating all ways to operate more effectively to carefully manage our way through the current trading difficulties."

It was also announced at other Bauer stations this week, including CFM and Metro Radio, that "a small number of roles are in consultation with regard to a proposal to make some of these roles redundant."
