Global signs BBC Newsnight Policy Editor Lewis Goodall
Journalist and broadcaster Lewis Goodall is joining Global as the third host on Global’s major new podcast co-presented by Emily Maitlis and Jon Sopel.
Lewis will also be Analysis & Investigations Editor for Global, with a remit to work on video journalism, reporting on breaking stories and creating high impact content for the podcast, Global Player and across social channels for LBC.
He comes from BBC’s Newsnight, where he was Policy Editor for BBC 2’s late-night current affairs show. Before that, he was a Political Correspondent for Sky News.
Lewis Goodall said: “The chance to join Emily and Jon in their bid to create the world’s best and most innovative daily news podcast was exciting enough, but the opportunity to help lead and supercharge Global’s commitment to quality video journalism and reporting – my great passion – in this next major stage in their expansion, took things to another level still. I can’t wait to get started.”
Tom Cheal, Managing Editor of LBC, added: “I’m delighted that Lewis will be joining Emily and Jon for our new Global podcast. Lewis combines expansive knowledge of the inner workings of Westminster with brilliant storytelling, and impactful, agenda-setting reporting which will be a core focus as we continue to enhance our video output.
“Global has always led the way when it comes to visualising audio and as we move into the next phase of growth, video journalism will play an increasingly important role in how we reach and engage audiences.”
