The Week: Media News - BBC restructures mag sales

BBC Magazines is set to close its centralised sales team, giving more commercial duties to its individual titles and making ten redundancies from its 100-strong sales team.

The company's second major restructure in two years will result in a separate sales team for the Radio Times, Top Gear and Lonely Planet, as well as teams for food and gardening and children's and youth titles. The brands will continue to cross-sell across the portfolio.
