Crick was a founding member of the Channel 4 News team when the programme launched in 1982. In 1988 he moved to America to become Washington Correspondent.

He joined the BBC in 1990, then moved to Newsnight in 1992.

Crick said: “Channel 4 News has a reputation for an in-depth, analytical and cheeky approach to politics, and I look forward to delivering exactly that.

“Whilst I am sad to leave Newsnight after 19 happy years, I have always admired Gary Gibbon’s journalism and it’s fantastic to be returning to my ITN roots to join him and the rest of the Channel 4 News team.”
