CHRYSALIS U.K. Dance network GALAXY and EMAP Dance network KISS are discussing teaming up to better compete with the BBC.
The GUARDIAN reports that the stations, which do not compete head-to-head (KISS has analog stations in LONDON, BRISTOL, and EAST ANGLIA, and GALAXY is on in MANCHESTER, BIRMINGHAM, YORKSHIRE, and NEWCASTLE), are exploring content sharing, although CHRYSALIS Head of Programming PETE SIMMONS says, "We won't be sharing a breakfast show MONDAY to FRIDAY."
The stations already share one program, a weekend chart show, "FRESH 40," produced by independent SOMETHIN' ELSE.
