Lewis Goodall

Lewis Goodall is Policy Editor of BBC Newsnight, the BBC's flagship politics and current affairs programme. He covers politics, policy, government and economics in the UK and beyond.

Known as one of the UK's most effective and engaging TV news storytellers, he has covered a wide array of stories since he joined Newsnight and broken many of his own along the way. He led the way in exposing the care homes scandal in the early part of the pandemic. He later championed and uncovered the extent of the exam crisis in the summer of 2020, his coverage being widely credited with shifting government policy - his work on this subject led to his nomination for an Orwell Prize. In 2021 he led the way on the building safety crisis, exposing one of the biggest policy failures in modern British history. Most recently he has been covering the Ukraine war and the biggest refugee crisis in Europe since 1945, reporting from across eastern Europe. He is part of the BBC's election coverage line-up. He also regularly presents the Westminster Hour, PM, Newscast and Ukrainecast as well appearing across BBC output, including the 10 o'clock news.

From 2017-20 he was a Political Correspondent at Sky News where he covered the Brexit process. He has interviewed many of the big players of British politics, past and present. He presented the channel's 2017 and 2019 election night programmes. He writes for the New Statesman magazine. In 2018 he published his first book, Left for Dead, a modern history of the Labour Party.

Lewis studied History and Politics at St John's College, Oxford, the first in his family to go to university. He lives in London.
