Five networks, one team
BBG networks are news leaders, covering stories left untold in environments that lack press freedom and fostering civil dialogue in places overwhelmed with disinformation.
Fighting for press freedom
Terrorist, government and criminal forces have pushed press freedom to its lowest point in 12 years. It is in these most press-restrictive areas that the BBG operates.
Improve accountability and impact measurement
In 2016 BBG enhanced its comprehensive Impact Model to assess and evaluate the impact that BBG programming actually has on the lives of its audiences and their communities. MORE
Implement a market-driven shift to digital distribution
Although TV and radio continue to dominate in many parts of the world, the BBG is responding to audiences’ preferred media platforms and increasing the production of content and high-quality journalism on digital platforms. MORE
Enhance strategic cooperation between networks
The five BBG networks are putting unprecedented emphasis on coordination and content sharing in order to better report on the stories that matter to their audiences. MORE
Increase curation of content
By partnering with compelling storytellers, documentarians and journalists, the BBG provides exceptional and relevant programming, maximizes resources and improves operational efficiency. MORE
