Channel 4 News appoints first Science Editor

Channel 4 News has announced that Tom Clarke is to become the programme’s first Science Editor.

The newly created role sees Clarke move from this current position of Science Correspondent. Channel 4 News has gone under a revamp this year which has seen an updated studio, graphics and on-air presenting team. The programme now also features a full time weather presenter for the first time.

“Tom is an exceptional science journalist, whose knowledge & expertise gives viewers and online users of Channel 4 News a superb insight into everything from nuclear meltdown in Japan to the search for the Higgs-Boson. In this new role, he will have greater freedom to shape our overall science coverage and deploy his engaging style to bring original stories and scientific revelations to light.” – Jim Gray, Editor, Channel 4 News.
