A lot of people are leaving ITV right now as a result of the cutbacks. The three of us working on ITV Local in Leeds will eventually be disbanded but we don’t have dates yet. Many people working in ITV Local in other parts of the country have already gone. The expectation is that we’ll have more clarity on March the 4th.
The process of cutting back and rationalising ITV is leading to some technical changes and re-ordering of physical spaces. A proposal on the table is that the BBC and ITV should share some facilities and media. One reporter said that he could imagine we’d all be working out of a shared telephone box!
As this process moves forward I am taking some photos – along with other people – and thought it would be a good idea to upload some of them to a flickr group which I’ve called ITV Turnaround
