Whisper it, but it looks like Radio 5Live has been allowed to do its own thing on Election Night. For many years now, UK elections have meant simulcasting with Radio 4, with the succinct and incisive James Naughtie taking the lead role.

This was presented, internally at least, as a cost saving, and a more sensible use of the outside broadcasts involved. Now, though we haven't seen the full billing, it looks like Stephen Nolan in Salford and Emma Barnett in London will be covering the overnight results for the network, leaving Naughtie and Carolyn Quinn to serve Radio 4 listeners alone.
