Jonny has overseen social media planning, commissioning, and delivery, across many of the biggest news events in living memory for BBC News.
Starting his career in local TV at BBC Yorkshire’s Look North, he’s passionate about the importance of regional media and is proud of his work to unite network and regional social coverage.
After catching the journalism bug aged 13 on community radio in his native north east England, he’s never looked back. He spent 3 years in Student TV and Radio at the University of Leeds (and found a bit of time to get a degree too!).
One day, Jonny would love to lead a major news broadcaster or agency; he's particularly interested in helping to navigate the changing media landscape. He wonders, what's next? Could content be delivered by hologram...?
