Fresh from announcing important new distribution deals in the US and Burma, the BBC's international television news channel, BBC World News, is unveiling a dramatic new look next week when it re-launches from new studios in central London. The channel will feature a refreshed line-up of programmes and presenters, and will be investing heavily in additional newsgathering capacity around the world.
From12 GMT on January 14, the channel will broadcast from new state of the art high definition studios in the BBC's new London headquarters, the redeveloped Broadcasting House.
BBC World News journalists will be at the heart of 'the world's newsroom' where the BBC's UK and international journalism teams have come together to provide output across digital, radio and television and 27 different languages, reaching an audience of 239 millionpeople around the world each week.
Eventually, 6,000 people – more than a quarter of all BBC staff – will be based in Broadcasting House, one of the world's largest broadcast complexes.
The channel will also debut new on air talent including Yalda Hakim, one of Australia's brightest international journalists, who has joined the channel as a current affairs correspondent and presenter for a new weekly current affairs programme. BBC World News has also announced that long time BBC News presenter and reporter Jon Sopel is joining the channel to present Global with Jon Sopel, a new weekday international news programme.
