Christopher Hope is joining GB News as Head of Politics and Political Editor.

Christopher – best known as Chopper – joins from The Daily Telegraph, where he is Associate Editor of Politics.

He first joined the paper’s Lobby team in 2006 and has covered politics in several roles including Whitehall Editor and Chief Political Correspondent.

“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,” Christoper said.

“The next general election will be decided in the Red Wall, in the exact areas of the north where GB News has won some of the strongest audiences in news broadcasting. It’s a vital constituency offering a compelling motive to cover politics differently.”

Christopher began his journalism career on trade publications and newspapers in Scotland before joining The Daily Telegraph 20 years ago, initially on the business reporting team.

GB News recently launched the Camilla Tominey show on Sunday mornings. Jacob Rees-Mogg launches his nightly show at 8.00pm next Monday (27th February).
