GB News has hired Christopher Hope, also known as “Chopper,” as head of politics and political editor.
Commenting on his new role, Hope said:
“For me, the most exciting thing about joining GB News is the opportunity to bring politics to audiences who feel they’ve been poorly served by media in the past.”
He joins from The Telegraph, where he presented the weekly podcast interview series “Chopper’s Politics.” There, he also held the posts of business correspondent, Whitehall editor, senior political correspondent, assistant editor and chief political correspondent.
Hope graduated from the University of Bristol and has a post-graduate diploma in journalism from Cardiff University in Wales.
