Sky News has appointed Hannah Thomas-Peter as it’s first dedicated Climate Change Correspondent.

The creation of the new role solely focused on climate change demonstrates Sky News’ commitment to the topic.

“I am delighted to take on this role at such a critical time,” said Hannah.

“Climate change is going to touch all of our lives in myriad ways, and it may come to define the way our children and grandchildren live.

“I’m tremendously grateful to serve our viewers as they continue to seek high quality, hard hitting journalism on the issues that matter most to them. I can’t wait to get started.”

Thomas-Peter will leave her role as US Correspondent but will remain based in New York for this newly-created global position.

Head of Sky News, John Ryley added: “Sky News recognises the growing jeopardy and significance of climate change and this newly created role is another demonstration of how serious we view the subject.

“Hannah is perfectly suited to tackle the issues head on, she brings a wealth of experience from her current role in the US and has won several awards for her excellent journalism and reporting. Sky News will give its full weight and support to continue to set the agenda on the crisis of climate change.”

Paul Kelso will become a Business correspondent for Sky News in the autumn, while Mark Stone moves to the Middle East and Adam Parsons to Brussels as Europe correspondent.
