The BBC has made the decision to appoint Jess Brammar as their new executive news editor, and she will take up her role this month:

“Jess Brammar is an award-winning editor with wide-ranging experience in broadcasting. Jess has previously worked at the BBC, most recently as the acting editor of Newsnight, which won a number of RTS awards during her tenure. She started her career at the BBC’s Question Time and has also worked for ITN. Jess was editor-in-chief of HuffPost UK until earlier this year. In her new role Jess will oversee the BBC’s two 24 hour news channels – BBC World News and the BBC News Channel.”
