GB News has announced the addition of two new regional reporters to its team.
The new news channel plans to supplement its core on-screen presenting team with an army of regional reporters who will be tasked with finding and covering local stories that matter to their communities.
Over the weekend the channel confirmed that former Sky News journalist Paul Hawkins has been appointed as a London reporter, while Anna Riley will be taking up the post of reporter for Yorkshire and Humberside.
Meet @paulejhawkins our new London reporter. After 15 years in the capital Paul loves its quirks and understands its issues. He's worked for the BBC and Sky and will be seeking out people in all of London's communities to tell their stories in a fresh, GB News way. pic.twitter.com/bZhJoqkVAZ— GB News (@GBNEWS) May 10, 2021
