Birmingham Press Club hosts leading broadcaster event

An evening with one of Brum’s finest, Lewis Goodall.

One of Britain’s leading journalists and broadcasters, Birmingham-born Lewis Goodall (pictured), will be talking about his experiences at a function in the city on 28th November. It will be hosted by journalist and author Brian Doogan and be followed by an audience Q&A.

Digbeth Dining Club is to host the event, in association with Birmingham Press Club, at Hockley Social Club. Tickets are £10 each and may be obtained by logging onto here.

Doors open at 6 pm with the event itself commencing at 8 pm.

Lewis, who grew up in Longbridge, was educated at Turves Green Boys School and Cadbury Sixth Form College in Birmingham before gaining a degree in history and politics at St John’s College, Oxford.

Currently the Analysis and Investigations Editor for The News Agents, he works alongside Emily Maitlis and Jon Sopal in co-presenting a daily podcast launched last year on LBC, part of Global, the media and entertainment group.

Lewis, who in 2021 was nominated for an Orwell Prize for his report on the A-Level grading scandal, began his career in 2012 as a producer and reporter at the BBC. He left four years later to become a political correspondent at Sky News but returned to the BBC in 2020 as Newsnight’s policy editor.

Upon joining Global, Lewis said: “The chance to join Emily and Jon in their bid to create the world’s best and most innovative daily news podcast was exciting enough, but the opportunity to help lead and supercharge Global’s commitment to quality video journalism and reporting – my great passion – in this next major stage in their expansion, took things to another level.”
