ITV wants to be left alone


by David Allen

The Chairman of ITV, Michael Grade, has gone further than anyone else has when it comes to public service broadcasting (PSB).

Already ITV plans to scale down its regional news and local interest programming which has meant the loss of 430 jobs in the regions.

However, it seems that there could be moves which are more drastic, in the future for all news programmes.

In a speech at the Royal Television Society, he suggested that all news programmes could be given over to third parties to produce.

It has been suggested that the Press Association or even Sky News could provide enough news coverage for ITV, meaning that they could scrap the ITV news service altogether.

Michael Grade suggests that this would leave ITV to do what they know best, make TV shows.
