Commenting after STV chief executive Simon Pitts faced the Scottish Parliament's Culture committee on Thursday over the reorganisation of STV which is set to see more than 50 jobs lost, Scottish Liberal Democrat MSP Tavish Scott said:
"Today STV have confirmed that not only will there be fewer journalists in post, there will be fewer stories being covered.
“STV’s main shareholder is an investment company who soften up businesses for sale. That is what Crystal Amber who own 20% of STV do.
“STV management appear remarkably relaxed about this. That is extremely concerning for staff and people who want to see STV continuing as a Scottish company.”
