About

Overview

George Negas is a lecturer in broadcast, social and digital journalism, working primarily for the MA Broadcast Journalism and MA Television Journalism courses.

The websites he has created for students to use during their digital journalism studies, have been praised by the Broadcast Journalism Training Council (BJTC) and visiting news editors.

He is also a freelance journalist, currently working for the video division of The Associated Press news agency in a variety of roles, including intake editor, social media editor, live editor, field video journalist and output senior producer. He has been involved in the coverage of many major breaking news stories, including the terrorist attacks in Westminster, London Bridge and Finsbury Park, the EU referendum and Greece's deadliest wildfires.

A native Greek, George has also worked for the country’s public broadcaster, ERT, and was involved in employee-organised, EBU-supported broadcasts in 2013, when the then-government shut the broadcaster down overnight.

He also freelances as a video editor, trainer and media consultant. Clients include ITN Productions, and maritime newspaper Lloyd’s List publisher, Informa group.

George is a member of the Royal Television Society.
