The BBC launching the first news programme from a publisher outside the US on Facebook Watch later this year.
Cut Through the Noise will be a weekly made-for-mobile show that will tackle a different issue each week. It will be presented from BBC News’ Washington DC bureau or from the field.
“We’re excited to be working with Facebook on this show,” said Jim Egan, CEO of BBC Global News. “Social media is an important source of news and information for many Americans, so we are always looking for new ways of bringing our audiences high quality, non-partisan news coverage they can trust from around the world.”
As TVBEurope reported last month, Facebook is rolling out Watch globally.
