News Committee

The News Committee is an elected body representing the news activities of the EBU’s membership. The committee for the 2023 to 2025 term of office was elected on 23 November 2023.

The committee, which has an interdisciplinary membership, is dedicated to the EBU's objectives. It facilitates and fosters dialogue and cooperation between the news operations and staff of its Members. It develops and shares best practices, media expertise and innovation in news gathering and distribution.

The committee organizes and sets the agenda for the annual News Assembly, which offers news directors, editors-in-chief and foreign desk editors the opportunity to network and exchange views about improving coverage, reducing costs and implementing new technology. By setting the agenda for the annual gathering, the News Committee aims to help shape the future of journalism and the way in which public service media fulfil their mandate.
