On October 18, 1922, The British Broadcasting Company (later Corporation) is founded by a consortium, to establish a nationwide network of radio transmitters to provide a national broadcasting service. On November 14, 1922, The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) began radio service in the United Kingdom when 2LO, the second radio station to regularly broadcast in the United Kingdom (the first was 2MT) was transferred to the new British Broadcasting Company. The British Broadcasting Company, Ltd. (BBC) was a British commercial company formed by British and American electrical companies doing business in the United Kingdom. Licensed by the British General Post Office, their original office was located on the second floor of Magnet House, the GEC buildings in London and consisted of a room and a small antechamber. On December 14, 1922, John Reith was hired to become the Managing Director of the company at that address. The company later moved its offices to the premises of the Marconi Company. The BBC as a commercial broadcasting company did not sell air time but it did carry a number of sponsored programmes paid for by British newspapers. In 1923 the British Broadcasting Company took to nearby Savoy Hill for its broadcasting studios. On December 31, 1926, the company was dissolved, and its assets were transferred to the non-commercial and crown-chartered British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). On March 9, 1930 2LO was replaced by the BBC Regional Programme and the BBC National Programme. The letters LO continued to be used internally as a designation in the BBC for technical operations in the London area (for example, the numbering of all recordings made in London contained LO). The code LO was changed to LN in the early 1970s. The 2LO transmitter now belongs to the Science Museum, having been donated by Crown Castle International on November 7 2002. It is now on show in the Information Age gallery on the second floor of the museum.
