It wont be a simple font replacement, I imagine the BBC will be redoing its whole graphics package.
It is also possible they will just re-render the current titles but replacing the placenames with Reith versions, as well as updated logos - but it would be a shame if they didn't at least consider changing the titles branding as well.
With lower thirds on the news, expect white text on black straps bit reminiscent of text on online content
Reith seems to have rolled-out over much of the BBC website now, but the News page is noticeable lacking it - particularly as it was partly created for long-form journalism (as seen in the BBC Four show
Two Types: The Faces of Britain
Appreciating BBC News has more pressing tasks and up-to-the-wire deadlines, does anyone in-the-know have any info on when the News site might be converted? For me, Reith is much more readable. Some BBC News programmes seem to use it - I guess where the graphics package has been freshly created, but it's a slow roll-out...
Part of the delay is that News consists of a few different products (front page, articles, WS2020, the upcoming New Article, topic pages etc.) and updating them all simultaneously is not trivial when News devs' time is already quite stretched. The adoption of Reith on Cymru was proof of concept of all this but hasn't been without issues, but it really shouldn't be much longer now before you start seeing it
