We made sure in designing our editorial structure and choosing the members of our editorial board to hardwire the highest levels of rigour and independence into our newsroom.”

The channel will offer everything from breaking news and in-depth analysis, to expert panel discussions, business and sport is covered in a refreshing style unique to the channel.
