Radio 5 live at MediaCityUK – with or without Mayo?

Simon Mayo apparently doesn’t want to relocate to Salford when BBC Radio 5Live makes the move to MediaCityUK.

But it’s worse (better?) than that – Iain Dale has a list as long as a footlong baguette of 5Live presenters who are also ‘unlikely’ to reposition themselves – “So what we are looking at is a completely new presenter line-up on the news and current affairs programmes.” (!)

It’s just the latest in a growing trend of stories about BBC staff who are not entirely happy at the MediaCityUK move. Hopefully this mini-exodus from 5Live will pave the way for some fresh Northern talent…

(In case you were wondering – Simon Mayo will be ok, he is apparently going to replace Ken Bruce on Radio 2, but not until 2011. Goodness knows what will happen to Ken Bruce.)
