BBC says its news chief, her deputy 'step aside'
LONDON (AP) -- The BBC says its news chief and her deputy have `stepped aside' while the broadcaster deals with the fallout from a child abuse scandal that forced its director-general to resign.
Helen Boaden, the BBC's director of news and current affairs, and her deputy, Steve Mitchell, have handed over their responsibilities to others for the time being, BBC media correspondent Torin Douglas said Monday.
There was no formal announcement from the corporation.
