Interesting that the BBC, rather than admitting their blunder in sinking one of their better shows in a failed attempt at gender balance, are on the offensive, majoring on the "abuse" Ms Whiley was subject to on social media. A pretty transparent tactic.
RAJAR figures due out shortly and we'll be told how the show gained listeners, conveniently ignoring the fact it moved from two hours to three so would really require a 50% increase to have stood still.
A disaster from start to finish. The poor woman hadn't a clue what was needed on a drivetime show, wittered on about her children, the groups she knows, new music, festivals and endless stuff that had listeners turning off in droves and never managed any chemistry with her established and talented co-presenter
