Chris Mason replaces Laura Kuenssberg as political editor of BBC News


Chris Mason has been announced as the new political editor of BBC News.

The broadcaster announced that he would succeed Laura Kuenssberg next month.

Mason has been a political correspondent for the station for more than a decade, covering television, radio and online from Westminster.

He has presented BBC Radio 4’s programme Any questions? since 2019.

“What an enormous privilege to be taking on what I consider to be the most extraordinary job in British broadcasting and journalism,” he said in a statement.

“I climb onto the shoulders of giants like Laura, Nick and Andrew with a touch of trepidation and a lot of excitement and enthusiasm.

“Leading the best team of journalists in the business on the best news patch ever was something I never dreamed of. I can’t wait to get started.”

Kuenssberg announced in March that she would be taking on the BBC’s new look sunday morning Show.

The program was formerly known as That Andrew Mr Demonstrate, which Andrew Marr presented for 16 years before leaving the BBC at the end of 2021.

Before that it was breakfast with frost, presented by David Frost.

Kuenssberg will step into her new role when the show relaunches this September with a new look, title, theme music and format.

Her final task in her current post will be the local elections in May.
