ALEX REES

LONDON

I am an accomplished producer of audio documentaries and podcasts, and through my work at RT UK, I have become a principled and talented broadcast journalist. In TV news I have covered the country’s biggest stories, and in radio I have told affecting, personal ones. I now have over 2 years of professional experience these fields.

 

After completing a BA in Film and Television Studies from Aberystwyth University, I swapped sand and seagulls for smog, and graduated with an MA in Radio at Goldsmiths, University of London in 2017. In September 2017, I became a broadcast journalist at RT UK, and in the new year became the chief Brexit journalist for the station. Now, I’m returning to my natural habitat of dark studios and seeking freelance work in audio production and podcasting.
