6Music saved by record audience

The BBC Trust has delighted thousands of music fans by saying that “the case has not been made for the closure of 6 Music”  and that there is “significant public support for the service” given that 78% of almost 50,000 online responses to the BBC’s consultation on its Strategic Review focused principally on 6 Music.  Listening figures have significantly increased since the proposal to axe the service and this record audience seems to have saved the station.  The same has not happened for the Asian Network, another digital radio station earmarked for possible closure.
