BBC News is the operational division of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) responsible for collecting and broadcasting news and current events. The division is the world's largest news broadcaster, producing around 120 hours of radio and television output and online news coverage every day. The service has 50 foreign news bureaus with more than 250 reporters worldwide. Fran Unsworth has been Director of News and Current Affairs since January 2018.
The department's annual budget is over £ 350 million; It has 3,500 employees, 2,000 of which are journalists. Local, global and online news sections of BBC News are hosted at Broadcasting House in central London, Europe's largest live newsroom. Parliamentary coverage is produced and broadcast from studios at Millbank, London. Through the BBC English Regions, the BBC also has regional centers across England and national news centers in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. All countries and British regions produce their own local news and other current events and sports programs.
The BBC is a semi-autonomous company authorized by royal charter, making it operationally independent from the government, which has no authority to appoint or dismiss the director general and requires him to report impartially. However, as with all major media outlets, it is accused of political bias across the political spectrum, both within the UK and abroad.
