The BBC plans to shutdown some websites and two digital radio stations, but promises
to divert some spending to high-quality content such as journalism.
The plans, laid-out in a strategic review,
argue the BBC will demonstrate its ‘distinctiveness’ by asserting
values such as “Trustworthiness: meeting the public’s expectations in
editorial standards and impartiality, and providing a benchmark for
broadcasting in the UK.”
The BBC is backing away from ventures —
such as hyperlocal news and numerous websites — that compete with local newspapers and internet businesses, among the “commercial rivals who
have complained about the public broadcaster’s growing reach in areas
beyond traditional radio and television,” according to The New York Times.
