I’m Professor of Journalism at City University London and started there in 2009 (Head of Journalism 2009-14). I previously worked as a writer and editor for The Times (of London) for more than 20 years and before that as a reporter for for The Observer. I have been on the board of the International Press Institute and the World Editors Forum. I’m a trustee of the Bureau of Investigative Journalism and member of the editorial advisory committee of The Conversation UK. More career details here.
This blog hopes to carry opinions, links, discussions, reflections and comments about journalism at a moment when changes in technology have brought it to an inflection point. Anyone looking for a general summary of my outlook and views of what journalism is and should be can start here.
