BBC News is a British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) operating business group responsible for collecting and broadcasting news and current affairs. The department is the largest broadcast news organization in the world and produces about 120 hours of radio and television output every day, as well as online news coverage. The service maintains 50 foreign news offices with more than 250 worldwide correspondents. Since January 2018, Fran Unsworth has been the director of News and Current Affairs. The annual budget of the agency approaches £ 350 million; it has 3,500 employees, 2,000 of which are journalists. The domestic , foreign and internet news departments of BBC News are based in Broadcasting House in central London, inside the largest live newsroom in Europe. Parliamentary news from studios in London's Millbank is produced and transmitted. The BBC also has geographical centers across England across the BBC English Divisions, with major news centers in Northern Ireland , Scotland and Wales. Local news programmes and other current affairs and sports programmes are produced by all nations and English regions. The BBC is a royal charter-authorized quasi-autonomous company, making it operationally independent of the government, with no powers to appoint or dismiss its director general and forcing him to report impartially. It has, however, been accused of political bias from across the political spectrum, both within the UK and overseas, as in other major media outlets.
