All BBC Five Live shows will move to Salford, says new controller

Moving BBC Five Live from London to Salford will be an “all or nothing” operation, according to the radio station’s new controller.

Adrian Van Klaveren told MediaGuardian that all the station’s daytime shows will make the move to Salford in 2011. But he added that the move would not be a catalyst for the station’s relaunch.

Van Klaveren declined to specify how many staff he expected to take with him but said that “as long as you can get that absolute core of the people fundamental to the station’s success, then you have got a position where you build from and make a success of it”.
