BBC Five Live Drops Two Shows
February 1, 2007 at 5:46 AM (PT)
Talk BBC RADIO FIVE LIVE drops weekend show "BRIEF LIVES" and recurring feature EURO NEWS later this year. The GUARDIAN reports that the station informed the NATIONAL UNION OF JOURNALISTS of the changes, which it ascribes to backing off of pre-taped programming in favor of more live shows.
Also at FIVE LIVE, former ITV host GABBY LOGAN, who joined the station in DECEMBER, will fill in as NICKY CAMPBELL's morning co-host for a month, beginning in FEBRUARY, while SHELAGH FOGARTY takes extended leave. LOGAN's own show will air SATURDAY mornings beginning next month.
