‘BBC World News America’ Anchor Matt Frei Jumps to Channel 4

“BBC World News America” anchor Matt Frei is leaving the program to become Washington correspondent for the UK’s Channel 4. Frei has anchored the program since October, 2007.

Channel 4 is rejiggering its lineup, hence the addition of Frei. Political correspondent Cathy Newman is becoming a regular “presenter” (that would be “anchor” stateside) while Jackie Long is joining the network as social affairs editor.

Frei’s move comes just a few weeks after the BBC reshuffled its stateside programming, shifting “BBC World News America” to the BBC World cable channel from BBC America, while also expanding its presence on some PBS stations.
