A NEW group specially set up to advise First Minister Carwyn Jones on the future of public service broadcasting in Wales will meet for the first time today. The broadcasting advisory panel will focus on all issues of public broadcasting, including the need to protect and maintain specifically Welsh cultural, linguistic, economic and democratic interests. Directly reporting to the First Minister, it will meet once a month and offer advice and recommendations on how best to maximise the impact of broadcasting in Wales. Members of the panel include Ron Jones, founder and executive chairman of Llanelli’s Tinopolis, and media lawyer and policy advisor Emyr Byron Hughes.
