It’s rumoured the revamp of BBC News will go ahead on Monday 15th July 2019.

This will include the introduction of the new BBC corporate font: BBC Reith.

An internal email to BBC staff said the new font will be used for:

  • The BBC regional news programmes on iPlayer have already updated their slides:
