ITV Wales presenter and 2013 mentee Rob Osborne has been elected the National Union of Journalists’ ‘father of the chapel’ by his colleagues.

The National Correspondent, who presents the weekly topical programme ‘Sharp End’ in Wales, succeeds veteran journalist Nick Powell, who is retiring.

‘It’s an honour to be chosen by my colleagues,’ said Rob.

‘Our newsroom is unique in the UK, as we have colleagues who work in news as well as English and Welsh language programming.

‘I hope to build on the good relationship which exists between union and company.’
