6 Music confirmed to close

March 2, 2010 at 12:44 pm (Music News) ()

Announced today that the BBC radio show 6 Music will close despite huge amounts of protest. Also facing the chop is the Asian Network, Switch and Blast.

 The BBC will now try and serve the 6 Music audience by re-shaping Radio One and Two as well as other BBC channels as part of a £600m facelift.

The cut backs are said to come into effect by the end of 2011.

    £600m facelift? More like increasing Chris Moyles salary another couple of hundred thousand per year. R.I.P 6 music.

    Now they are saying that they are open to re-thinking the decision, if they get enough people protesting that is.
