“Show was designed to reach audiences the BBC struggles to connect with, and it did – online.”
The show’s former editor Louisa Compton also tweeted: “An organisation that values original journalism and underserved audiences should not be doing this.
“It’s madness. #VictoriaLIVE consistently breaks huge stories, has won countless awards including a BAFTA and has broken new ground. Plus it has an outstanding team and presenter.”
The Victoria Derbyshire official show account and Victoria herself are yet to comment on the news on social media.
