BBC to cut 90 jobs in news by 2010


London : British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) News has announced its decision to sack nearly 90 jobs by 2010.

The Mirror online reported that the bulk of the cuts are to take place in the news gathering team that will help save the group around 155 million pounds.

The BBC also plans to plough over 70 million pounds into areas such as foreign coverage and on-demand news.

“The BBC is working hard to minimise compulsory redundancies. It is a tough, but necessary process,” said a channel spokesperson Wednesday.
