BBC NI to take large job cuts

Ninety eight people are to have their jobs cut in BBC NI. The plan is to use the cash saved to invest in new regional programmes. Overall the BBC cuts will include “420 in news, 66 in sport, 150 in drama, entertainment and children’s programmes, 735 in the regions, 58 in new media and 424 in factual and learning”.
