Noel Phillips

At age 15, Noel’s career began as a radio presenter which led to him being dubbed as the youngest broadcaster in Birmingham.

He got his break at the BBC in the West Midlands, who hired him as a reporter and producer straight after graduating Staffordshire university. 

This led to a six-year career of bouncing from local reporting to eventually relocating to London to work at the BBC News Channel and the Victoria Derbyshire programme.

During his time at the BBC, he shone a light on some fascinating and gripping issues, and by putting real people at the heart of his storytelling – from gaining exclusive access to a psychiatric hospital for young people with learning disabilities to taking viewers inside the homes of parents who are attacked by their children.

He was also one of the main reporters at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding for BBC World TV. He also produced a three-part series for the BBC’s iPlayer focusing on the increase in violent crime in London. 

In 2019, Noel was nominated for Best Young Talent at the Royal Television Society Awards.

Later that year, he joined Sky News as a Correspondent, where he led the channel’s coverage on the Black Lives Matter protests, not to mention a number of scoops.

He was the only journalist to interview rapper Wiley, who sparked outrage after posting a series of antisemitic comments on social media.

Noel joined Britain’s top-rated morning news programme, Good Morning Britain, as their North America Correspondent in March 2021.

He has covered a number of breaking news and entertainment stories, from the trial of Derek Chauvin, to reporting exclusively on the U.S.-Mexico border crisis, and the Oscar awards.
