Dorset World Service site may shut after 70 years

RAMPISHAM’S radio transmission station may close before Christmas with the loss of more than 20 jobs, even though it’s currently broadcasting into Libya.

The proposed shutdown of the Dorset site follows the BBC’s decision earlier this year to cut back on World Service shortwave broadcasting and stop it altogether by 2014, even though nearly half of the World Service’s audience (184 million in 2010-11) listens via shortwave.

    that is indeed very sad, it seems that the speed to stop and close down shortwave broadcasting is increasing and nothing but nothing anyone can do to slow it or prevent it!
