Congratulations to Lewis Goodall, off from Newsnight to join Sky News as a political correspondent.
From St John's Oxford, where he studied history and politics, Lewis joined Granada TV in 2010 as a researcher, where tasks included writing questions for University Challenge. Then a year with the IPPR, where James Purnell was in charge. This all qualified him to join Auntie as a broadcast journalist in 2012, rising to producer/presenter (with an agent).
It could have been different. View his profile from 2010, on Casting Call Pro. Marvel at his mastery of accents, his ballroom skills and willingness to perform in the nude.
