Broadcaster commits to Armed Forces Covenant

GB News has committed to supporting Britain’s service personnel and veterans by signing the Armed Forces Covenant.

Timed to celebrate the occasion of Armed Forces Day, this broadcaster has signed the pledge to acknowledge and support the commitment and sacrifice made by members of the Army, RAF and Royal Navy.

The covenant ensures that members of the Armed Forces community receive the same access to the products and services available in Britain, recognising the specific challenges associated with service in uniform.

Every pledge is different and the GB News promise ensures that the broadcaster continues to promote the Armed Forces and support reservists and veterans among the staff.

GB News has also committed to celebrating Armed Forces national events, as it has done since its first broadcast over two years ago, and promoting and taking part in remembrance activities.

In particular, the broadcaster is committed to engaging with the Armed Forces presence local to our London headquarters and regional reporters.

On Armed Forces Day, South-West Reporter Jeff Moody will attend celebrations in Falmouth, Cornwall.

GB News Editorial Director Mick Booker said: “Our armed forces put their lives on the line to keep us safe and they are there to support us in times of national crisis.

“It’s only right that we support them when they need it and see to it that they and their families are looked after.

“GB News is proud to sign the Armed Forces Covenant.”
