The Sun has strengthened their political team to offer non-stop politics coverage across seven days in print and online, says the publisher.

The new look political team is as follows:

  • Harry Cole is political editor of The Sun
  • Kate Ferguson is The Sun on Sunday’s political editor
  • Ryan Sabey is promoted to deputy political editor of The Sun
  • Jonathan Reilly is promoted to new role of Westminster editor working Tuesday to Saturday and will also deputise for Kate on the Sun on Sunday
  • Natasha Clark is now promoted to chief political correspondent as well as continuing to cover the environment beat.
  • Jack Elsom is promoted to political correspondent
  • Noa Hoffman joins as political reporter

Victoria Newton, editor-in-chief of The Sun says: “Reporting from the House of Commons, The Sun’s brilliant political team have broken a string of fantastic exclusives.

“Consistently holding power to account, they champion the freedoms and rights of our readers every single day and campaign passionately on their behalf.

“We’re at a pivotal moment in British politics and, with war in Europe and a cost of living crisis raging, their work has never been more important.”

According to The Sun, the integrated team will be filing exclusive stories and analysis for both the The Sun and The Sun on Sunday, as well as thesun.co.uk.

Harry Cole won Scoop of the Year in 2021 for The Sun’s world exclusive on Matt Hancock’s affair with his aide where the then Health Secretary’s breaching of his own social distancing rules led to a national public outcry and, within 72 hours, his resignation. The Sun then fought for press freedom as an instrument of democracy in the wake of the ICO investigation, says the publisher.

The Sun’s newest political reporter Noa Hoffman, they added, broke the story of how Chris Pincher, the Conservative deputy chief whip, had sensationally quit after allegedly groping two men while drunk.
