BBC News and BBC World News will be relaunched later this year with a more digitally-focused all-news service. Part of this rebranding involves cutting a total of 70 jobs, including 14 presenters, leaving just five dedicated presenters, which is expected to save the BBC over £1million. Here is the confirmed new lineup from the BBC news presenters.
Matthew Amroliwala has worked for the BBC since 1989 and has been at the forefront of much of its political coverage of the UK.
He has worked on four general elections and since 2015 has presented the international program Global, discussing major events in India and elsewhere in the world.
He was named by the Television and Radio Industry Club as Reporter of the Year in 1993 for his reporting on the Troubles in Northern Ireland and covered the IRA ceasefire in 1997.
Matthew has also worked as a general news reporter, as well as a foreign correspondent.
