About Me

Andy Bonner

I am probably best-known for my award-winning work on the new Hillsborough Inquests. No other journalist covered as many days at the hearing, the longest case heard by a jury in British legal history.

However, I have worked on all types of news stories. From as early as January 2020, I was reporting on what was to become the coronavirus pandemic, later seeing Covid hospital wards first-hand and following the extraordinary effects that the virus has had on all of our lives.

I joined Granada Television in 2000, working on Granada Tonight, Sunday Supplement, Lunchtime Live and a documentary about the Manchester Commonwealth Games; Beyond The Baton.

I learned how to shoot and edit as an industry-pioneering video journalist at cable TV station Channel One Liverpool. I now put those skills to good use for ITV.

I have been presenting TV programmes since the 1990s, when I hosted a weekly movie show, current affairs programmes and read the evening news. I still enjoy presenting Granada Reports from our studios in MediaCity UK, Salford.


Trained in broadcast journalism, I began my career in radio. I joined Marcher Sound (now Capital FM Wrexham/Smooth Radio North Wales) and also read the first news bulletin on what is now also Capital FM Liverpool. I enjoyed guest presenting the breakfast show on Radio City Talk.
