The BBC has poured a large bucket of cold water over the stories that 6Music will be saved and rebranded as Radio 2 Extra:
In a brief statement, the BBC said: "We have said that we will re-invest any funds from the proposed closure of 6 Music in digital radio content. This commitment remains and we are looking at a number of ways of doing it.
"But simply re-branding 6 Music as Radio 2 Extra is not one of them"
Although if they were simply rebranding 6 as 2Extra, there wouldn't be any savings from the closure of 6Music anyway, so this is a bit of an empty statement.
Also: although this appears on Radio Today, the BBC Press Office haven't issued a copy.
