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.
