favourite Yalda Hakim (pic­tured) has joined BBC World News as a pre­sen­ter and cor­re­spon­dent for a new cur­rent af­fairs pro­gram, TV Tonight. Hakim has been with SBS for four years re­port­ing from the Mid­dle East, the US, Africa and Europe. ‘‘Ob­vi­ously I’m sad to be leav­ing my SBS fam­ily and home in Aus­tralia, but I’m de­lighted to be join­ing the dy­namic team at BBC World News,’’ she says. ‘‘Its cred­i­bil­ity . . . is truly the best in the world.’’ Hakim will launch the in­ter­na­tional cur­rent af­fairs pro­gram for BBC World News next year.
