He has led on online and mobile news at the BBC since 2016, having previously worked on the World At One, Newsnight, and the Today programme during his time with the corporation.

Nick Sutton Tiktok
BBC News head of social Jeremy Skeet told Press Gazette in January 2022 that although the broadcaster has built the biggest news following in the world on Instagram, it has chosen not to be on TikTok or Snapchat because it has to stay “true to our brand” and not do light news. It also does not have the resources to create the bespoke content needed, he said.
However, Sky News head of digital Sutton who was at BBC News for 23 years until he left his role in spring 2020 to join the rival broadcaster, told Press Gazette that Sky is taking a “different approach”.
Sutton said it was important to stay “nimble” in using different social platforms as a referral tool to Sky’s own website and app to get its “journalism out to as wide an audience as possible”. He added: “What’s great about some of those platforms is that they’re audiences who wouldn’t naturally come to Sky News.
On Snapchat Sky was originally one of 17 news brand partners to launch shows for the Discover tab in 2018, one of which, Hotspots, went behind the scenes of big international stories with top correspondents like Alex Crawford.
Hotspots are soon coming back, Sutton said, on top of the Sky News daily page which has 1.41m followers and Sky News Investigates show which has some 701,000 and has just been nominated for the Royal Television Society’s Digital Award. The broadcaster also runs a weekly climate show similar to the daily TV primetime show which launched last year.
Sutton said: “What I think is quite interesting is that it’s quite often, with Investigates and the climate things, some of the most hard-hitting stories that seem to really resonate.”
In April 2022 report, Sky News has surpassed one million followers on Tiktok amid huge demand for its “distinct, eyewitness reporting” from Ukraine.
The milestone came on April 8, 2022, after a growth in the broadcaster’s Tiktok following of 1,125% in under two months (from 81,600 followers on 9 February).
It means Sky News has overtaken The Sun, which tends to post less regularly and with a higher proportion of non-Ukraine news mixed in, as well as The Telegraph and GB News.
It is the second UK-based news brand to cross the million mark, after the Daily Mail which is on 3.7m.
Sky saw the highest rate of growth among the major UK news publishers on Tiktok in the past two months, followed closely only by ITV News which saw growth of 1,037%.
