It will see the News at One make history by being the first daily network TV bulletin aired outside of the capital.

In a huge presenting shake-up, BBC Breakfast stars Jon Kay, Sally Nugent and Nina Warhurst will front the new hour-long show.

They’ll host on rotation alongside existing BBC News anchors Ben Brown, Anna Foster and Tina Daheley.

The News at One’s first bulletin from the BBC Breakfast Salford studio at MediaCity will take place on Monday, June 3.

Sally Nugent will present the first edition, having already hosted BBC Breakfast that morning.

Richard Frediani, the editor of BBC Breakfast and BBC News at One said: “I’m delighted to bring the News at One to Salford, where it will join forces with the brilliant BBC Breakfast team to create the first major weekday TV news bulletin to be produced and broadcast from outside London.

“In the extended programme, we’ll be serving daytime audiences with the best of BBC News – the biggest stories of the day, with more depth, context and analysis, and the expertise of BBC Breakfast to show more human-focused stories from across the UK.”

Following the announcement, fans have been left worried for their regional news bulletins.

Taking to social media, one said: “No regional news at lunchtime anymore?”

A second wrote: “Will the local news bulletin of 15 minutes be included in this hour?”

However, The Sun understands the regional bulletins will be included in the hour-long broadcast.
