Huw Edwards is set to leave the BBC after being given the inquiry findings into his alleged behaviour after allegations emerged he had paid a young man for sexual images, it was reported on Friday.
The BBC News presenter, 62, was suspended by the corporation in July after it was claimed he had paid thousands of pounds for sexual images.
Police investigators found no evidence of any criminal wrongdoing by the presenter.
The results of the internal inquiry into Mr Edwards’ alleged behaviour have not yet been published, but it is understood he has been in talks with the BBC about his future.
Although his identity was initially protected after the claims were made, his wife Vicky Flind eventually revealed it was her husband at the centre of the scandal as she announced he was in hospital receiving treatment for his mental health.
Mr Edwards denies all the allegations against him and stressed to the i that he ‘did nothing illegal’.
The Welsh presenter was a major face of the BBC, fronting the News at Ten and being the highest paid journalist at the broadcaster.
