Radio is once again the victim, as BBC Northern Ireland follows the Rhodri Talfan Davies' template to move money to 'digital first'. 

Radio Foyle in Londonderry, which is largely an opt-out service from the mothership of Radio Ulster in Belfast, loses its Breakfast Show, running from 7am to 9am, currently presented by David Hunter and Elaine Magee; and all its own regional news bulletins.  Radio Ulster loses a weekly business and economics show, to the greater glory of 'online'.  The balance will eventually see 36 post closures, with all journalist jobs at Radio Foyle 'at risk'.
