BBC expected to cut news jobs

Follows Tony Hall's resignation from his role of director general

The BBC is reportedly set to announce a wave of job cuts in its news division.

The rumours follow Tony Hall’s resignation from his role of director general earlier this week.

According to The Times, the broadcaster is looking to shift its focus towards its digital news output, with the aim of recouping £80 million each year in savings.

The cost-cutting measures include the cancellation of The Victoria Derbyshire Show on BBC Two and BBC News.

The cuts are also expected to include redundancies, though the BBC News channel is thought not to be affected.

The BBC is due to make an announcement concerning its news operation next week.
