Huw News

Will there be more News at Huw from July ? Huw is quite often unavailable for the 10 O'clock News on BBC1 on Wednesdays, to record The Wales Report for BBC1 Wales, which goes out at 10.40pm.

Now in its sixth annual run of 26 shows, the programme has been produced by indie Wales & Co since 2012. The slot went out to tender earlier this year, and it's understood Wales & Co weren't among the bidders - which is odd. And the new, unnamed weekly politics show will now be produced in-house by BBC Wales.

The man making the call is BBC Wales Commissioning Editor Nick Andrews, who has also ordered a monthly tv debate for Welsh edification at peak-time. This will be produced by indie Avanti, now part owners of Songs Of Praise.
