BBC Announces Radical Reorganization

The BBC is planning to move £700 million ($977 million) of spend and hundreds of jobs outside of London as the corporation bids to better reflect the U.K.’s nations and regions after being criticized by government ministers for having a “narrow urban outlook.” The BBC’s so-called “Across The UK” strategy was announced to employees on Thursday morning, and is being touted by BBC top brass as one of the most radical reorganizations of the broadcaster in its nearly 100-year history.
