Sunday Papers - BBC day of disruption
Most of Sunday’s front pages reflect the impact of a day of disruption for sports programming at the BBC following the decision to ask Match of the Day host Gary Lineker to step aside.
According to the Mail on Sunday, the BBC experienced a “day of unprecedented drama” due to the lack of football coverage after Gary Lineker was removed from air. The paper reports that TV and radio schedules had to be hastily rearranged because other presenters and pundits refused to appear on the shows. The Mail describes the incident as an “astonishing staff mutiny.”
Meanwhile, the Sunday Express reports that the “blackout” caused “BBC bosses to scramble to fill the schedule.” BBC One was left without Football Focus or Final Score, and instead aired episodes of Bargain Hunt and the Repair Shop, according to the Sunday Telegraph.
