Study shows imbalance of 2.7 men for every woman on TV and radio programmes in March
Almost three times as many male as female experts featured on the UK’s flagship TV and radio news programmes in March as the media focused on the political handling of the coronavirus outbreak across Britain.
Research focused on the makeup of experts appearing on the BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, BBC News At Ten, ITV News at Ten, Kay Burley’s breakfast show on Sky News, Channel 4 News and Channel 5 News found an imbalance of 2.7 men for every female expert.
The imbalance represents a three-year high, according to data gathered by the Expert Women project (EWP) from City, University of London.
