BBC 6 Music saved

BBC Trust Chairman Sir Michael Lyons today set out initial conclusions on how the corporation can make the transition to a fully digital future.

Specific points about radio in the Trust's interim conclusions said that, as things stand, the case has not been made for the closure of 6 Music.

The Executive should draw up an overarching strategy for digital radio and if the Director General wanted to propose a different shape for the BBC's music radio stations as part of a new strategy, the Trust would consider it.

The Trust would consider a formal proposal for the closure of the Asian Network, although this must include a proposition for meeting the needs of the station's audience in different ways.
