"In the next few weeks too, we will announce a new structure to simplify the BBC, so we can remove duplication of management". Thus spake Lord Hall on March 8th 2016.
He went on " Fewer divisions, with clearer missions, and clearer accountability.
It’s a process that has already begun.
Last year we announced the merger of Technology, Engineering and Digital into a single division.
In January, we announced a single controller across BBC TV channels and iPlayer – meaning a more streamlined commissioning system, greater collaboration, and more open movement of ideas and talent across the portfolio.
You will see more like this in the weeks ahead."
The referendum campaign seems to have got in the way. Very few people inside the BBC expect the announcement of very much about the BBC until this is over.
