Policy Exchange proposes more local news competition with BBC


More competition with the BBC should be created for local news broadcasting, according to thinktank Policy Exchange.

A new report said about local news: ‘External contestability would focus on areas where BBC plans were most in danger of crowding out commercial schemes rather than helping to raise standards and ambition across the sector.”

The report recommends that ITV ditches its public service broadcasting commitments in 2012 – two years before the end of its PSB licence.
