Ticker appoints first UK and European correspondent

Ticker News has appointed Simon Anderson as its first UK and European correspondent.

The announcement:

Ticker News is thrilled to announce our new breaking news reporter, based in London.

Simon Anderson has been appointed Ticker’s first U.K and European correspondent. Simon will report directly from London across the week, filing reports from the scene of breaking news.

Until recently, Simon has been the ITV News editor and field producer, as well as a digital news curator with Upday, a fact checking media company in conjunction with Facebook U.K.

Simon brings a range of experience from the broadcast media industry, with skills as a news producer, field producer, online video editor, and as a television news reporter.

Ticker CEO and founder Ahron Young says: “Ticker loves London! Now we’re about to shake up the local news industry with our coverage of breaking news, business and tech. Simon is the perfect candidate. I was once an Aussie journo living in London. It’s a rite of passage. He brings credibility and good humour to a great role for us.

Originally from Sydney, Australia, Simon is keen to combine his years of experience in newsrooms and editing roles, with on-camera reporting.

Simon Anderson says: “I’ve been keenly watching Ticker’s journey progress over the past two years and I’m absolutely thrilled to be leading the expansion into London and Europe for Ticker News, it’s a great honour. This opportunity to work for a business that is so fresh and rapidly growing could not be more exciting”.

As the second international expansion, London will become Ticker’s first European base. With offices situated in the heart of the city, bringing exclusive interviews and live coverage on breaking news.
