Latest TV News with news editor MarkWalker, and regular presenters Yael Breuer and Andrew Kay.

At Latest TV, we are in a uniquely privileged position, of not only having people contact us each day with exciting things that are happening in the city, but also inviting us to said exciting events. And not only that, we’re invited to film the glorious community events and share them with people across Brighton, Hove, Worthing and Chichester.

Our community news team is small, focussed and if you want to know what’s happening in the city, there’s no better people to ask. Our news editor Mark Walker loves politics and sport and knows as much about the complexities of the Brexit negotiations as he does about the intricacies of Brighton & Hove Albion’s latest and upcoming games, which is a lot! Our intrepid filmmakers, William, Steve, Lourdes, Ollie, Adam and Mike are constantly delivering vivid VTs for Mark to craft into a news show, delivered with panache by the engaging Yael and myself! VTs stands for video tapes, an old fashioned phrase for the very up to date and modern way of video journalism.
