News channels to merge
Jul 14th, 2022, 5:45pm
 
According to this BBC news web-page the two BBC News channels are to merge.


"The BBC has said it is investing in "new capability to cover breaking news stories" for a TV news channel which is expected to launch in April 2023.
The channel, which will be called BBC News, is replacing the corporation's two existing, separate UK and global news channels.
It is part of plans for a "digital-led, streamlined organisation".
About 70 UK-based BBC staff will lose their jobs as a result of the merger, it is understood.
But in Washington DC, about 20 jobs will be created."

More information here, from TVBEurope.

"As part of its plan to merge its existing UK and international news channels into one, the BBC has said it intends to invest in new technology and studio capacity.

The investment will be used to visualise popular radio programmes, a trend which is becoming increasingly popular with news channels."
