Radio 5 live controller says MediaCity move is all or nothing

The Guardian has an in-depth interview with the new controller of BBC Radio 5 Live, Adrian van Klaveren. Radio 5 Live is one of five BBC departments making the move to Salford Quays, and Van Klaveren says he is looking forward to the challenge of the move, but he admits not all of his staff will share his excitement.

“Not everybody’s going to want to come,” says the new controller. “We have got to be realistic, that won’t be the case. But I think enough will want to come for us to be able to make a success of it.” Van Klaveren describes Five Live’s move to the mediacity:uk development as a “once-in-a-generation opportunity” to create an “even better radio station”.
