Prolific North News, in association with Quays TV and produced by University of Salford, is a weekly broadcast interview with a senior media figure from the North as well as a round-up of key stories from the week.

This week, we speak to Jonathan Wall, the Controller of Radio 5 live and 5 live sports extra.

With the station recently celebrating its 20th birthday, he talks to us about his attempts to improve its news coverage, the impact of the move to MediaCityUK on output and staff, and how further budget cuts could lead to a reduction in overnight programming.
