The BBC News at One will start broadcasting from Salford on Monday, 3 June, making it the first daily network TV news bulletin outside London.

The move is part of the BBC’s Across the UK (ATUK) plan, which aims to move power and decision-making across the country to better reflect, represent and serve all parts of the UK.

The lunchtime programme will be broadcast from MediaCity in Salford, twelve years after BBC Breakfast made the switch from London.

A new studio has been created for the move, and the programme will be extended to one hour, giving viewers greater depth, context and analysis of the day’s big stories.

The News at One will be edited by BBC Breakfast editor Richard Frediani, who said: “I’m delighted to bring the News at One to Salford, where it will join forces with the brilliant BBC Breakfast team to create the first major weekday TV news bulletin to be produced and broadcast from outside London. In the extended programme, we’ll be serving daytime audiences with the best of BBC News—the biggest stories of the day, with more depth, context and analysis, and the expertise of BBC Breakfast to show more human-focused stories from across the UK.”

John McAndrew, the BBC’s director of news programmes, added that the move north would deliver on the BBC’s commitments to “provide a news service that serves and reflects all communities across the UK” and support local talent and creative economies beyond London.

The first edition of the programme will be presented by Sally Nugent, with a pool of well-known BBC News presenters including Ben Brown, Anna Foster, Tina Daheley, and Jon Kay all set to front the News at One following the switch.
