|BBC Trust to decide on Local Radio Strategy and Dorset\'s bid
Wed 04 Apr 2012
We understand that the BBC Trust is to meet on 26th April 2012 to decide on their Local Radio Strategy, following their online consultation late last year. They will, we are told, also decide on the proposal from BBC Radio Solent, to re-launch an opt-out from Solent to cover East Dorset (which would nearly put us back to how we were in 1996!) Only this time, the programme will only be dedicated to Dorset for Breakfast and Drive Times. We view this as a beginning of getting Dorset back on the BBC's map! And we will continue to press for full coverage as already given to the Channel Islands, Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Hampshire and wiltshire. Surely, Dorset is now a very special case? Watch this space.
