Angelo wants to build on the new-found stability to grow the channel’s audience of Britain’s first new rolling TV news broadcaster in over three decades. Angelos reflects on the “teaching moments” from those rocky first few months. He faces down those who sought to ‘cancel’ the channel before it was even launched by organising an advertising boycott, and shares with pride the evidence that those attempts failed – including the creation of 200 new journalist jobs. He also sets out plans to make GB News “distinctive” including “serving all communities across the UK”, unlike the other “London-centric” broadcasters.
We are proud to be the United Kingdom’s News Channel.
We place all its communities at the heart of everything we do. We tackle the issues that matter across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland not just the nation’s metropolitan centres. We are balanced and fair in our coverage and ensure conversations are insightful and respectful and set an example by treating others the way would we expect to be treated.
GB News is a British free-to-air opinion-orientated television and radio channel. The channel is available on Freeview, Freesat, Sky, YouView, Virgin Media and via the internet on YouTube. Since 4 January 2022, an audio simulcast of the station has been available on DAB+ radio
We choose to work at GB News because we believe in our Editorial Charter. We are disruptors. If we are not changing, we are not evolving.
We will challenge each other to think differently and to innovate. Impartiality and integrity are at the core of our commitment to delivering authoritative and accurate news the public trust and providing balanced coverage of often sensitive issues. Our journalists will be drawn from many diverse backgrounds – we will not do ‘group think’. We approach stories differently and challenge media conventions.
