ITV News and the US network NBC have jointly appointed Rohit Kachroo to act as Africa correspondent for both broadcast organisations.
Kachroo, who is currently ITV News' crime correspondent, is expected to take up his new post in Johannesburg later this month when the UK and US TV news services will start their joint operation.
In addition, ITV News Middle East reporter John Ray will also become a joint correspondent for NBC News.
Ray will be supported by NBC News's production team in Israel to provide reports for both ITV News and its new US partner.
ITV News' partnership with NBC comes after the UK broadcaster opened a new bureau in Dubai and shuffled its foreign correspondents, reducing its presence in Africa.
