BBC journalism controller: “no new editorial launches”

By conrad

BBC journalism controller Nic Newman has categorically stated that the corporation will not be making any new editorial launches in the immediate future.

Last week’s announcement came as he also revealed that the news section of would undergo a redesign, to be unveiled early next year.

Newman said the revamp would include a ‘ramping-up’ in outgoing links from the website.

His comments come a month after the BBC revealed plans to supply its news video content to the Daily Mail, Daily Telegraph, Independent and Guardian, an offer rejected by News International and questioned by the Press Association.

In November last year, the corporation’s plan for a local online video network was rejected by the BBC Trust after heavy criticism from local and national newspaper groups.
