BBC Radio 4's Norman Smith gets TV job

Radio 4 reporter Norman Smith is to take over as the BBC’s Chief Political Correspondent, working across the corporation’s News Channel and main television bulletins – as well as providing analysis for network radio.

He replaces Laura Kuenssberg, who is leaving the BBC later this year to become ITV’s Business Editor.

50-year-old Norman’s appointment was announced by BBC News Channel controller Kevin Bakhurst on Twitter.

He has been at the BBC for 25 years, starting out as a local radio reporter. For the last couple of years he has been Radio 4’s Chief Political Correspondent with regular appearances on both Today and PM.

Sue Inglish, head of Political Programmes at the BBC said: “Norman brings a wealth of experience and political knowledge to the News Channel. His sharply focused analysis, well known to listeners of Radio 4’s Today programme, will enable the News Channel to maintain and enhance its reputation for cutting edige political reporting.”
