BBC 6 Music has had immense support from the public and industry since plans were announced to close the station earlier in the year. According to a report in The Times, BBC 6 Music has succeeded in winning a stay of execution after the BBC Trust agreed to review the fate of the alternative music stations.

BBC 6 Music has witnessed support from countless campaigns up and down the country, including words from Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Broadcasting Minister Ed Vaizey.

On the other hand, the BBC Asian Network has received much less support but staff at the station are hoping it has done enough to sustain the national DAB frequency, which looks in jeapordy.

BBC Director General, Mark Thompson has been overwhelmed with the response over the two niche channels, believing it to illustrate the value of some of the broadcasters more niche activities. The BBC Trust may now therefore advise Thomspon to conduct a further period of consultation on BBC 6 Music's closure.
