Global’s News Editor for Scotland Corrie Martin, and Global’s Chief Strategy Officer Will Harding have appeared in the Scottish Government’s Debating Chamber to talk about upcoming changes.
They were giving evidence to the Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee on Thursday morning about the recent announcement to offer networked breakfast shows in Scotland across Heart and Smooth, plus on Communicorp’s Capital.
When questioned if the exercise is to cut costs, Will Harding confirmed the headcount in Scotland is only dropping by one person, from 34 to 33 people, despite the removal of Scottish breakfast shows.
It was also mentioned Global is increasing the number of news staff in Scotland, and the method of using split links to deliver Scotland specific content was also explained.
The full questioning was broadcast via Scottish Parliament TV, and can be watched below.
