Martin Bashir returning to BBC as religion correspondent

Associated Press Associated Press 26/09/2016

LONDON — The BBC says journalist Martin Bashir is rejoining the broadcaster as religion correspondent after many years in the United States.

Bashir said Monday he was "delighted" to return to the BBC as religious affairs correspondent, covering the major issues affecting different faiths in Britain and around the world.

Bashir gained fame for a 1995 BBC interview with Princess Diana in which she discussed the breakup of her marriage to Prince Charles.

His 2003 documentary "Living With Michael Jackson" aired on ABC in 2003 to a huge audience.

Bashir joined ABC in 2004 and in 2010 moved to NBC as an MSNBC anchor and a correspondent on the "Dateline" program. He resigned from MSNBC in 2013 after graphically disparaging a comment former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin made about slavery.
