ITV's turnaround plan - a U-turn to disaster
The NUJ and colleagues from other Unions met ITV plc this morning to discuss national issues. Top of the agenda for the NUJ was the damaging proposals to abandon commitments to local news on ITV. Senior executives held the party line. No-none wants to be disloyal to the current leadership. Despite the fact that they all followed a different mantra a matter of months before. Tonight, ITV is hosting a jolly at the labour party conference. Given the support we have had from across all parties since these plans were announced, I suspect it will not be an entirely happy event for ITV.
