Inside Lines: Poor ITV fear future coverage might not make the Grade

Anxious times in the currently rudderless ITV sports department facing major cutbacks after last week's announcement that £135 million has to be slashed from the channel's programme budget. Staff are concerned that the "horrible decisions" the ITV chairman, Michael Grade, says he now has to make will see substantial job losses and a severe reduction in sports coverage, especially if ITV fail to renegotiate payment terms on the £425m FA Cup deal they share with the similarly financially troubled satellite station Setanta. No major decisions are expected before the end of the football season, and fingers are crossed that the sports-loving Grade who began his career as a humble sports diarist and boxing writer (hope for us yet, then?) will wield the axe more gently than in other areas. But after the department's recent erratic performances you wouldn't bet on it.
