NATIONAL news bulletins on LOCAL stations!
« on: January 17, 2016, 10:13:49 PM »
It is not long since all BBC local stations started to take a national bulletin every hour after 7pm on weekday evenings. Now national bulletins are being used in the evening at weekends too. There are some excellent music shows on the regional outputs at weekends. Now they are having to lose time just to take national news. It seems ridiculous! Who wants this on a local station at 10pm on a Sunday evening for example. You could go to so many of the national stations if you really wanted it.

I tend to agree Radio lad. I always thought it was a bad move axing the regional news updates weeknights 7pm to 12 midnight. The same happened on Saturdays and Sundays back in May. Which I thought was a big mistake.I take it the BBC had a big backlash over it so they then in true out of touch style give us a pointless England wide update. Even the weather forecasts is so vague its not even worth broadcasting it. Unless the BBC return to a regional service I do not see the point in the latest waste of time effort.
