Michael Crick is Political Correspondent for Channel 4 News.
Michael has been an on-screen TV reporter for almost a third of a century. He is the only founding member of the Channel 4 News team from 1982 (when he was 24) who is still working on the programme - though there was a 21-year gap when he worked for a lesser-known British broadcaster.
In his first spell on Channel 4 News he ended up as Washington Correspondent (1988-90). He says his move back here in 2011 was the best he ever made. "I've never enjoyed my work as much as I do now. Gary Gibbon is a superb Political Editor, the best in the business. We have very different styles as journalists, and I think that helps."
Michael has won three RTS awards - the first, in 1989, was for his coverage for Channel 4 News of the 1988 US election; the second, in 2002, was for a BBC Panorama programme on Jeffrey Archer. Then in 2013 he was RTS Specialist Correspondent of the Year. In 2014 he was also chosen as Political Studies Association Journalist of the Year.
He has written several books - including biographies of Alex Ferguson, Jeffrey Archer and Michael Heseltine. He is now writing a biography of the legendary political scientist and psephologist David Butler.
Michael is also a lay governor of Manchester University.
