Chinese TV star gets new job as a reporter on Hollywood’s top entertainment news program
LONDON — The British television show The X Factor, which stars Brits and foreigners, is to give its stars a new role.
In a move that has the potential to shake up the way British television news is broadcast, the BBC has decided to offer an “entertainer” a new gig as a producer on its flagship entertainment news show.
The new job is part of a push to make the BBC’s top-rated program more diverse and diversely produced, said a BBC spokeswoman.
The BBC will launch a new diversity initiative in the summer and will be looking at other ways to make its programming more diverse.
The job will be in the form of a producer role and the BBC will make no further comment on the position.
The job is being offered to a white British male, the spokeswoman said.
The X-Factor is one of the BBCs top-selling entertainment programs, with around 3 million viewers in the U.K. It has also been described as the UK’s most popular talent show and the most watched on British TV.
The show is a British reality competition, and attracts a mix of foreign and British viewers.
It is hosted by former reality TV star Jamie T, and has an average audience of around 7 million viewers a week.
British media outlets, which have had a tough time breaking into the U-K.
media market, have been forced to adapt to the new landscape, which has been dubbed the “British media jungle.”
The BBC has been under pressure to do more to attract and retain British talent, but many of the news outlets have struggled to find funding and have struggled even to stay afloat.
