Huawei Hires Former BBC Executive as Editor-in-Chief

Chinese tech giant Huawei has hired a former BBC executive as its “editor in chief.”

The US has banned the controversial producer of telecom equipment, over national security concerns and the companies’ ties to the Chinese military.

Now Editor-in-Chief Gavin Allen was previously in charge of some of the most influential news programs in the UK, and part of the upper management of British state media, the BBC.
