After learning that the fee that funds most of its operations would be frozen and leaving a potentially £2 billion hole in its budget, the BBC has started to lay out plans to reduce costs and switch to a “digital first” model.
The broadcaster says that up to 1,000 employees will lose their jobs in the coming years in an effort to stem payroll.
Radio 4 Extra is also expected to shift online to its BBC Sounds offering.
