Jackie Long Channel 4 News
Long is Channel 4 News Social affairs editor and presenter. She joined the programme in 2011, following more than two decades at the BBC.
As social affairs editor, Jackie reports on stories that look at the politics of everyday British life. A number of these stories have included child sexual exploitation, county lines and criminal exploitation and more recently, universal credit. The job sees more harrowing and difficult stories being covered, and although at times a balance of light and shade is needed, social affairs lends itself to more “misery”. Subsequently these are some of the most important stories to tell and for journalists it normally entails being able to have a cry and getting up the next day to start all over again.
Having worked at Channel 4 since 2011, Jackie has covered and reported on a number of stories, including free school meals, poverty and maternity care during the pandemic.
Most recently she was Correspondent at Newsnight, and she previously worked on The World at One, PM and Five Live. Throughout her career Jackie has had a range of experience in print and broadcast journalism.
