ITV to cut Kids programmes

itv-98-2006Ofcom has given the green light to controversial plans for ITV to cut its religious and children’s programming by as much as a half.
Weeks after the broadcaster was given the OK to halve its non-news regional television output, Ofcom said the commercial broadcaster could slash its commitment to religious programming by 50% and cut back on children’s programmes by nearly a third.

The cuts mean ITV will have to show just one hour a week of religious programmes, and just eight hours of programming dedicated to children.
