Agreed - a sensible move.

The former First Minister of Northern Ireland, Arlene Foster, is to join the news channel GB News.

Will they rename it GB & NI News to bring Northern Ireland into the mainstream of the channel's title?

Why? The BBC in Northern Ireland is still the British Broadcasting Corporation.

Re: GB News

Irish unionists identify as British. It’s unlikely to be a major concern for them.

Re: GB News

The BBC nations have stronger branding and a more localised flavour than the English regional variants do (e.g there’s always a local continuity announcer, and they always say “BBC Scotland” or whatever, not just when there’s an opt-out coming). However we’re all still well aware that it’s “B” for “British”.

... Except when it's "B" for "Brussels" or "Biased".

They're getting better, but it's still there in sly ways.

I thought it was "B" for Brexit for both broadcasters.

There you go again, with your stupid categorisations. It’s no wonder your Remainer lot deserved to lose the Referendum and the other democratic exercises that followed.

Re: GB News

How odd. The outside broadcast sound seems to be in sync with video. But the studio presenters are out of lip-sync.
