Ofcom Frustrates GB News’ Bulletin Plans

Along with plans to finally break into their advertising budget, GB News‘ forthcoming relaunch is also supposedly going to launch regular news bulletins, moving away from the current features-focused output.

Guido learns some presenters are frustrated their shows can’t do breaking news due to the broadcast rules, and a new “segregated look” has had to be developed, hosted by a different presenter to those doing the main show. Still, plans remain afoot to launch the bulletins in the next couple of weeks…
