GB News’ political editor Darren McCaffrey will sign off for the final time today.
“Over and out… After a long goodbye, today is my final one at GB News and indeed in the Westminster lobby,” Darren tweeted.
“After more than 5 years as Political Editor at Euronews and GB News – it’s time to take a break from political reporting and see a bit more of the world.”
Christopher Hope – best known as Chopper – will join GB News from The Daily Telegraph, as Head of Politics and Political Editor.
Darren continued: “Certainly been a rollercoaster ride, one where I’ve worked alongside brilliant colleagues and made lots of friends – I wish them every success in the future!
“Special shout out to the politics team of @tomhfh, @forster_k, @OliviaUtley and to @christopherhope who takes over from me.”
Huge talent, will be greatly missed. Can’t wait to see what you do next ?? https://t.co/qxIGgBC3P4
