The Hub is a news programme shown on the international news and current affairs channel BBC World News. The programme launched on 1 February 2010 as part of a network-wide refresh and was presented by Nik Gowing.[1] The programme aired at 17:00 GMT (17:00 BST in the summer) for 90 minutes.

The Hub replaced an edition of World News Today and served as a news 'nerve centre' for South Asia and the Middle East, providing both the headlines, and detailed analysis of the global news agenda. An edition of World Business Report followed the programme.

The programme aired its last edition on 21 December 2012 and was replaced by Global on 14 January 2013.
