BBC lacks content diversity, Ofcom CEO says

Ofcom CEO Sharon White said the British Broadcasting Corp. currently lacks diversity in its programming, the Financial Times of London reported Oct. 10.

As Ofcom begins overseeing the public broadcaster in 2017, White identified drama, U.K.-made content, kids' programs and news and current affairs as four areas the British media watchdog will initially focus on in terms of distinctiveness.

According to Ofcom research, people from Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales feel they are underrepresented by the BBC. White added that there is a lack of BBC content focusing on older women and minority communities, according to the report.

As a regulator, White reportedly said Ofcom will not extend the BBC any special treatment.

A BBC spokesman reportedly said it will dedicate 50% of its programming to women across all genres by 2020, among other reforms.
