ARD affils join daytime programming

Two of German pubcaster ARD’s affils, N3 (itself a marriage of Norddeutscher Rundfunk and Radio Bremen) and ORB, will air common daytime programming.

The move, another manifestation of consolidation of ARD programming, is a cost-cutting measure. Neighboring regional stations have been joining forces in sharing production and programming duties.

The new alliance means a total of 26 hours of shared programming per week. N3 will supply 56% of the news, talk and consumer-oriented programming, ORB the rest.

Berlin’s SFB opted out of the N3-ORB deal last October. That station is currently sharing programming with eastern web MDR.
