BBC to announce several cutbacks, Times of London reports

An upcoming BBC strategic proposal signals "an end to the era of expansion" for the British broadcaster, reports the Times of London. The review, scheduled for public release next month, will announce closures of two radio stations, the shuttering of half its website and a 25 percent cut in funding for American program imports. The Times story said that Mark Thompson, the Beeb's director general, will reveal in the report that the moves are due in part to the corporation becoming too large.
