‘World’ moves to Boston

Radio newscast jets from U.K. to East Coast

BOSTON — “The World,” the 2 year old daily radio newscast co produced by WGBH, the BBC World Service and Public Radio Intl., will consolidate its offices in Boston this March.

“The program has been produced across the Atlantic with the help of a fiber optic cable,” said “World” executive producer Neil Curry. “We’re now moving to a situation where we’re going to put most of the producers under one roof.”

Under the arrangement, most of the British staff connected to the program will work out of WGBH, serving as the Boston bureau for the BBC. “They will be able to provide facilities to BBC foreign correspondents who are filing stories out of New England,” noted Curry.

Heard on 107 stations in the U.S., the daily hour show features live newscasts from London at top and bottom of the hour, and those will continue.

A two- or three-person “World” office will continue to operate in London after the consolidation.
