sopel_7-19.jpg“BBC World News America” is bringing in well-known British journalist Jon Sopel from the mother country to fill-in for Matt Frei during his two-week vacation. He started Monday night.

Sopel is a regular “presenter” for BBC One and BBC News 24, and we think that means “anchor” in American. In related news, I will be replaced during my next vacation by my British counterpart, the editor of popular website TellyNewser.com.
