BBC Radio Stoke faces job losses as corporation wields the axe

NORTH Staffordshire's local radio scene has been struck another blow with the axe falling on jobs at BBC Radio Stoke.

The cash-strapped taxpayer-funded corporation has revealed plans to cut 460 jobs across the UK.

It means Radio Stoke will be cut back to three four-hour daytime shows, seven days a week, each conducted by a one presenter.

Listener favourites Den Siegertsz and Louis Stones (ex-Signal) have seen their shows removed from the lockdown schedule, casting their futures in doubt.

It was only recently announced that Signal 2 is disappearing from the airwaves in September, and Signal 1 will be reduced with just a regional breakfast show and then national output as a result of a group takeover.

Meanwhile, Leek-based online community station LASAR Radio continues to go from strength to strength, with plans announced for a second studio at Bank House.
