Chris is a multi-award winning and Emmy-nominated presenter and investigative journalist. He has uncovered some of the most shocking human rights abuses and criminality around the world for major programmes such as Panorama and he has become a familiar face fronting the UK’s major news programmes, starting as the youngest ever presenter of BBC Newsround at just 19 years old. He then presented Sky News where he was on air for the BAFTA-winning coverage of the 9/11 attacks. Chris was later snapped up to present and report for ITV News and in 2009 Chris returned to the BBC to present for BBC News and BBC Radio.
Chris has also earned himself the reputation of being an award-winning investigative journalist and producer, making a number of exclusive reports across the world during his time at ITV News, CNN and NBC from war zones, hostile countries and undercover in the criminal world. His undercover investigative documentaries for ITV’s Tonight, and now BBC’s Panorama, Newsnight and Our World has also led to a growing number of awards and an Emmy nomination. Chris is also an accomplished writer with much of his work featuring in the national press. His first book, entitled “Undercover”, was released in March 2010 and reached the Amazon top ten best sellers.
In 2016 Chris became Creative Director of the indie First News Productions, producing in-house content for the world’s first online video news channel for children. In 2017, the same team branched out to form Fresh Start Media, still producing content for First News, but also to develop factual series and documentaries for major broadcasters such as the BBC and Sky.
