BBC Wales has announced a major reorganisation as it looks to deliver savings of GBP 9 million per year by 2022. The restructure will bring together commissioning across television, radio and online for the first time. These changes in commissioning will see BBC Wales accelerate digital content development and target younger audiences. It will appoint a new Head of Commissioning to focus on TV and online commissioning. The new Commissioning team will include the editors of both Radio Wales and Radio Cymru, who will also join the BBC Wales Board for the first time.
