About Paul Mason

Paul Mason has specialist areas in business and the global economy first and foremost.  His makes sure his analyses of current trends and developments in the economy and business world are accessible to a wide audience. Without ‘dumbing down’ or patronising the viewer, he succeeds at making economics and politics ‘personal.’


Paul Mason joined Channel 4 News as the Culture and Digital Editor in August 2013.  Paul took over the role of Economics Editor at ‘Newsnight’ after several years as the programme’s Business and Industry Correspondent. He sums up his overall agenda as ‘profit, people and planet’.

Paul won the Workworld Business Journalist of the Year Award and the Wincott Award for his reports from China, and the Diageo African Business Reporting Award for his acclaimed film on how mobile phones are changing Africa.

Before joining ‘Newsnight’, Paul was a print journalist, covering business in magazines and newspapers. He was deputy editor of ‘Computer Weekly’, a campaigning magazine whose investigative team regularly broke stories that made waves across government and industry. Paul’s book, ‘Live Working Or Die Fighting: How The Working Class Went Global’, tells the story of the new ‘globalised’ working class, alongside the epic history of the labour movement.

Finally Paul has two out of the office obsessions: music (he was once a professional musician) and football.
