Clare Burton draws on a colourful career to present and report for BBC Channel Islands news.

In three years as a showbiz reporter for ITN, Clare Burton was lucky enough to interview a host of celebrities – from global superstars such as the Rolling Stones and ‘Brangelina, to the reality TV rejects of the day.

A spell at ITV Tyne Tees saw Clare Burton reporting on football (of course, it is Newcastle), floods, farming, job losses, the arts, politics etc – ie, a bit of everything! And all directly related to the people who lived there. A love affair with local news began.

Viewer/voter apathy is the enemy of the journalist, so it’s refreshing to hear people vent their feelings and let us in on their stories – that’s what the BBC is here for!
