Owen Fairclough

Owen Fairclough reports for CGTN from our Washington, D.C. office.

From election trails to Brexit, (nearly) Grexit and even Africa’s first World Cup, Owen has been a reporter for nearly 20 years in the UK, France and now in the United States, trying to make sense of perhaps the most defining story of our times: the Trump administration and the rise of populism.

Owen began his career as a newspaper and newswires reporter before betraying print journalism purists by crossing the aisle into TV with the BBC. He left the UK in 2008 to become business editor at France 24 and then moved across the Atlantic in 2014 to join CGTN America.
