BBC aims to become 'leaner and simpler' with new round of job cuts

Hundreds of jobs are expected to be axed by the BBC as it tries to become “leaner and simpler” at a time when it is facing a £150m-a-year shortfall in funding and growing political pressure from the Conservative government, the Guardian reports.
Tony Hall, the director general, is expected to warn on Thursday that a drop in the number of people paying the licence fee has hit BBC funding harder than previously expected and that the broadcaster must take radical action.
A BBC source said the new round of cuts would be “painful” and involve the reduction of senior and middle managers.
