Meet the 5 News editorial team

A few places remain at a Gorkana media briefing, where three journalists from 5 News – editor Rachel Corp, planning assistant news editor Emma Greatorex and digital editor Jack Leather – will address a PR audience.

5-news-new-logo5 News is Channel 5’s flagship news programme and is produced by ITN. Since early 2016 Sian Williams has presented the show, when she took over the spot from Emma Crosby.

Corp was appointed editor in November 2016. She was part of the team that launched 5 News in 1997, and replaced Cristina Nicolotti Squires, who left to become director of content at Sky News.

5 News was one of Channel 5’s original programmes when it launched in 1997. In 2005, Sky News took over the news slot, but the contract returned to original provider ITN in 2012. In October 2016, a new look 5 News was aired from a studio at the ITN building.

The media briefing will take place on Thursday 2 February,  8.00am at the Barbican Centre, and will run until 9.20am.
