Yalda Hakim to leave the BBC for Sky, Maryam Moshiri to present The Daily Global

Posted on Wednesday 26 July 2023 by TV Newsroom

The BBC today announced that chief presenter Maryam Moshiri will take over The Daily Global programme later this year.

This is because Yalda Hakim, who has had a career at BBC News covering some of the biggest stories for ten years, will leave the corporation later this year.

Yalda is off to Sky News where she will front a new primetime programme as part of a multiplatform offering focused on international news.

“I am honoured and excited to be joining Sky News as lead world news presenter,” Yalda said.

“I have long admired Sky for its smart, fearless and world-class reporting.

“At a time when global media must work harder than ever to earn the confidence of our viewers, I look forward to giving my all as part of one of the most talented and accomplished news teams anywhere.”

The BBC also announced that Dharshini David has been appointed as Chief Economics Correspondent.

This is a new role created in response to the Thematic Review of the BBC’s coverage of taxation, public spending, government borrowing and debt, the BBC said.
