The audience of some of BBC local radio stations continued to wane, as competition from other stations and digital devices grew.
According to a Sunday Times report, some BBC stations have lost more than a million listeners over the past five years. Weekly reach figures show a fall for BBC local stations across the UK from 9.2 million in 2013, to 7.8 million at present.
The report adds that some stations in smaller cities have suffered a larger blow with BBC Essex dropping from 236,000 to 160,000 over five years, similarly 105,000 to just 66,000 for BBC Coventry and Warwickshire.
