Listeners revolt over changes to BBC Radio 2.

Welsh news should be broadcast on Radio 1 and Radio 2, according to a new cross-party report on broadcasting in Wales.

BBC broadcaster Alex Lester has slammed Radio 2’s regular hiring of television stars to present its shows.

Alex, 60, was axed from the station in January after 30 years, losing his show After Midnight to repeats and playlists.

BBC Radio 2 broadcaster Brian Matthew has died, his family has said.

Matthew had presented Sounds of the 60s since April 1990. His last full show was broadcast in November 2016, but he returned in February for a final compilation programme.
