BBC News appoints its first LGBT correspondent

BBC News

BBC News has named Ben Hunte as its first LGBT correspondent, starting in the new year. Ben will report on the stories, issues and debates surrounding sexuality and gender, and focus on providing insight and analysis on matters affecting the LGBT community in the UK.

Ben played a key part during the coverage of the BBC’s Gay Britannia season, and presented his own series of LGBT-themed programmes on BBC Radio 4 and 4 Extra called The Ben Hunte Interviews. This year he also became the presenter of What’s New?, the BBC’s first TV programme and digital service for children in Africa.

Ben tweets @BenInLDN and is also on Instagram.
