While rumours circulate about the future of the Sunday Times, the newspaper reports on another potential sale – the magazine division of the BBC:
Radio Times and Gardeners’ World magazine could soon have new owners. The BBC is considering the sale of its magazine division, which produces 50 titles, after being ordered to curb its money-making activities.
In response, the BBC said that “no decisions have been taken about any of our businesses”.
