Sky News has appointed Paul Kelso as its sports correspondent.
Kelso has been the chief sports reporter at the Daily Telegraph for the last four years.
In 2011, Kelso was named Sports News Reporter of the Year in the Sports Journalists’ Association British Sports Journalism Awards, and in 2009 won the SJA Story of the Year Award for his exposing of the rugby union Bloodgate scandal.
Prior to the Telegraph, Kelso spent 13 years at The Guardian. He will take up his role at Sky News in the spring.
Sky News’ Head of News Gathering, Jonathan Levy, said, “Sky News is absolutely delighted that Paul is joining us. In hiring an award-winning journalist with a record of breaking big stories, we’re demonstrating our commitment to top class sports news coverage.”
Separately, the Telegraph has appointed Ben Rumsby as sports news correspondent. Rumsby moves to Victoria from PA, where he worked on football.
