BBC Newsnight has appointed Nick Hopkins as its Investigations Correspondent.

Hopkins, currently Investigations Editor of the Guardian, is one of the UK’s most experienced reporters and was a member of the Guardian team that investigated the Edward Snowden files.

He was previously National News Editor and Deputy Foreign Editor of the Guardian and has a distinguished record as a reporter at the Guardian, and previously the Daily Mail.

“Nick is one of those rare reporters who is admired and feared in equal measure,” said Ian Katz, Newsnight Editor.

“He has a remarkable track record of breaking great stories at both the Daily Mail and the Guardian and his byline is a guarantee that you can believe everything that appears underneath it. His appointment shows Newsnight is back in the business of breaking original agenda-setting stories.”

Nick Hopkins said: “I have had a tremendous time at the Guardian and been lucky enough to be involved in some amazing stories. But there is something very special about the BBC and particularly Newsnight. When I was a cub reporter on the Surrey Comet, I watched it with a sense of envy and awe. I never thought I’d have the chance to join such an influential and inspiring programme. And now I do.”

Nick joins a number of recent Newsnight hires including Chief Reporter Laura Kuenssberg, Policy Editor Chris Cook, Economics Correspondent Duncan Weldon and special correspondent Katie Razzall.
