Might there be tensions at the next meeting of the BBC Radio (& Music) Board ? When Lewis Carnie, new Head of Radio 2 (weekly reach 15.1m) and Paul Rodgers, new Head of 6Music (weekly reach 2.3m) are formally introduced to Gwyneth Williams, Controller Radio 4 (11.2m), Alan Davey, Controller Radio 3 (1.9m) and Jonathan Wall, Controller Radio 5Live (5.5m). And even Ben Cooper, Controller Radio 1 (9.8m) ?
Will Lewis and Paul ever reach the list of senior managers paid more that £150k ?
Perhaps the Board will be presented with a case study of the BBC Music Awards, now in their third year. Say the Excel has a capacity of 5,000 (still standing tickets left at £53.75), the BBC might expect to recover £225k. How much is Charlotte Moore, Director of Content, paying for this event ?
The list of Radio 1 Live Lounge performances shortlisted for an award (by the Radio 1 playlist committee) has been revealed. Spookily, three of the five - Craig David, The 1975 and Emeli Sande - are already part of the show's line-up. What are the odds of that happening ?
