I believe the reith overhaul of the website and app are in the pipeline.
Yeah, it's a very long pipe though isn't it?
It's a lot of different pipes, where Reith support is one item in a long backlog, and let's be honest, not the most strategically important one. The News apps are undergoing a significant rewrite at the moment so Reith can accompany that, and the new Article (which has also been completely rebuilt alongside a new CMS) has started creeping onto News Online more and more in preparation for that transition (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/cp03zwze47zo
). Unfortunately there used to be a dedicated News front page team who were not able to do the Reith transition before being disbanded, so hard to say when that will happen...
