I’m really pleased to announce that David Storey has accepted our offer to lead the new breaking news unit in the bureau.
David has been a key force in shaping this project, and he brings not only vast experience but also fresh ideas to the job. We know that David’s decision will make this a much easier transition, and we are really excited about it.
Stay tuned for more news on this very soon. This is a critical first step!
