Woman's Hour leaves Salford for London
Production of BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour is to be made exclusively in London, cutting costs of having two sites.
The change is part of BBC Radio’s Delivering Quality First policy, but goes against its policy of making more programmes outside of London.
The national long-running show is presented by Jenni Murray three days a week in Salford, and Jane Garvey in London the other two.
The BBC said: “As part of BBC Radio’s £38m DQF savings target, we have reviewed the way we make programmes and decided that, by having a single production base for Woman’s Hour, we can reduce costs without affecting listeners’ enjoyment of the programme.”
