Posted on March 15, 2010The Guardian reports that BBC Worldwide is likely to sell its magazine which include Top Gear, Radio Times, Gardening World and BBC Good Food.
The company says it is "looking to move away from physical media (such as magazines) in the UK."The review said the BBC had already implemented the findings on a BBC Trust-ordered review of BBC Worldwide's activities, published last year. It included a new remit for BBC Worldwide, which excluded any activity "not in keeping with the BBC brand", and ruled out future undertakings similar to its controversial purchase of the Lonely Planet travel guides business.
Today's report said it had already begun the process of disposing or outsourcing non-core assets, such as audio books, and exiting non-BBC branded channels overseas.
