Nikki Fox Appointed As BBC News Disability Correspondent

April 24, 2014

BBC News has created the role of disability correspondent, appointing Sony award-winning journalist and broadcaster Nikki Fox to the post.


Fox has reported on disability issues for The One Show and Rip Off Britain and has made documentaries for Radio 4 and Radio 5 Live, including Beyond Disability: The Adventures of a Blue Badger and Disabled and Desperate to Work.


She also regularly contributes to Richard Bacon’s Moan-In on Radio 5 Live.


From June, Fox will work as part of a team of three broadcast journalists based in Salford dedicated to reporting on disability issues, including producer Ruth Clegg and a cameraperson who is yet to be appointed.


Fox said: “I am beyond excited to be joining BBC News and am thrilled to be able to work as part of a specialist team of journalists, dedicated to the reporting of disability issues for a national audience, in a new and fresh way.”


Fran Unsworth, deputy director of BBC News, said: “Nikki’s appointment demonstrates BBC News’ commitment to providing the best disability news reporting across the country.”


Gary Smith, UK news editor for BBC News, said: “She is a talented broadcaster with an in-depth understanding of disability issues and her appointment is an important addition to our specialist journalism, allowing us to report disability stories with new expertise and commitment.”

    More political posturing and correctness by the Bent Broadcasting Corporation that likes to talk a lot, just like Question Time, which is utterly useless, just playing a game of verbal tennis, no one going no where. Just keep the peasants happy, so that you are concerned about them, whilst liking their children and having the likes of Hall, Savile, to entertain your peasant children. Bent Broadcasting Corporation is just that, Bent as a nine bob note
