When the TV news comes to your ears, what do you listen for?
The UK has a major problem with its public broadcaster, the BBC, and its new Chief Correspondent, who will be a veteran of BBC Two and Sky News.
Theresa May, the Prime Minister, announced that the new BBC chief correspondent, Jo Brand, would be leaving after just a few months.
But a source at the BBC told The Independent she would not leave because she has “always had an ambition to get back into public life”.
“Jo Brand will be returning to the BBC after only a few years,” the source said.
“She’s got an extraordinary reputation for bringing together journalists and broadcasters who want to tackle complex issues.”
She’ll bring the BBC’s unique brand of journalism to bear on issues of importance to the public.
She’ll be a great asset for the BBC.
She’ll be someone who can get the BBC back on track and be a real force for good.
“The BBC has been under scrutiny for months because of allegations of bias in its news coverage, and some critics say that the BBC is failing to take its impartiality seriously.
Brand was a veteran reporter who covered international affairs and global affairs for the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).
Brand joined the BBC in 2016 and was promoted to chief correspondent in October 2018, shortly before she was appointed to the position.
The BBC is not the only broadcaster in trouble over its handling of allegations against its reporters.
In February 2018, former Newsnight reporter and BBC political editor Matt Zarb-Cousins was suspended after it emerged that he had written articles praising Trump in a Twitter feed.
