Tim Davie: BBC move north will be tough for families


The BBC’s new director of audio and music, Tim Davie, has defended the decision to move FiveLive to Salford in 2011 – but conceded that the move will be tough for families.

Quoted in this week’s Ariel, he said: “The argument for a live news presence, a news hub in the north of England, is hard to resist.

“The truth is we’re going. It’s very important for the BBC. It will be tough for families.”
