The news of Ofcom's report is disastrous for the Welsh media industry. Scaling back regional programming will undoubtedly result in more job losses and lower quality television as well as less coverage of Welsh affairs.
It comes after job losses at the BBC, Trinity Mirror and just a week after news that Big Issue Cymru is to close its operation in Cardiff to move to Scotland. Under Ofcom's proposals ITV Wales will be severely downgraded, leaving BBC with a near-monopoly. Ofcom's light-touch regulatory approach has clearly failed both the industry in Wales and the viewers. My personal view is that Ofcom should be abolished and that its responsibilities for regulating the media in Wales should be devolved to the Assembly.
