WASHINGTON D.C., Tuesday, September 19, 2023 – The BBC has announced the expansion of News Briefing, the BBC’s essential guide to the world’s top stories, into a twice-daily email newsletter. The newsletter, which launched its morning edition last month, will expand to include an evening edition beginning on September 25th.   

Arriving in inboxes at both ends of the day, News Briefing will take readers to the heart of BBC coverage with deep-dives into the issues setting the global agenda from the correspondents who know it best.  

Every weekday, the newsletter will offer readers hand-curated summaries of the day’s main stories and will showcase expert insights and on-the-ground reporting from the BBC’s unparalleled network of correspondents around the world. On the weekends, a digest of top headlines will allow readers to stay up-to-date on the biggest news at a glance.   

Additionally, yesterday at Climate Week NYC, BBC senior journalist, Carl Nasman announced that he will be leading a new weekly climate newsletter coming to audiences in November. The newsletter will lift the curtain on the BBC’s climate reporting and shine a light on untold stories and positive innovations. 

These two titles are the latest additions to a growing series of curated newsletters, including, Tech Decoded, for the latest developments in global technology, Royal Watch, for the inside story on the Royal Family, and Football Extra, for news and gossip from the Premier League,  aimed at bringing the best of the BBC’s expertise to audiences around the world.
