Its television programmes transmitted on BBC One includes the daily "BBC Look East" news programme, the weekly regional magazine programme "Inside Out" and the weekly "Politics Show".

The region is the controlling centre for BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, BBC Essex, BBC Radio Northampton, BBC Radio Norfolk, BBC Radio Suffolk and BBC Three Counties Radio, and the local editions of the BBC's "Where I Live" websites. Sue Marchant presents from 7-10pm weekdays for these stations (except Three Counties Radio that has itsown content). After this, Nick Risby presents from 10pm-1am. Travel is read by Louise Rundle and Kerry Phelan every 15 minutes in the first hour then every 30 minutes. The news is broadcast from the Look East newsroom.

The headquarters for the region and the main studios for "Look East" are in The Forum, Millennium Plain, Norwich. BBC East also has television studios at the offices of BBC Radio Cambridgeshire in Hills Road, Cambridge. From here "Look East" broadcasts "Close Up" to the viewers in the west of the region (Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire).
