Tom is a highly experienced TV news reporter and journalist and is currently the political editor for ITV News, a role which he began in 2005. Since 2012, he has also been the presenter of the ITV political series The Agenda.
Tom prides himself on a 'no-holds barred' style of TV journalism and brings similar qualities to his public speaking, with some fascinating insights into what goes on behind the scenes and trenchant views on the modern political world, all delivered with great charm and humour.
Tom began his reporting career with ITV as Ireland Correspondent more than twenty years ago, during which time he covered the unfolding peace process in Northern Ireland. As Asia Correspondent from 1999 to 2001, he was shot and seriously wounded whilst covering a riot in Jakarta. After his recovery, he had a spell as ITV’s Royal Correspondent, before taking up his current post.
Tom led ITV News' coverage of the 2010 General Election and has conducted many exclusive interviews with the most influential figures in Westminster and the wider political arena - his interview with John Bercow was shortlisted for the Nick Clarke Award in 2009.
In addition to his TV work, Tom has also written five novels and a screenplay. His first novel, Shadow Dancer, was adapted to a film of the same name starring Clive Owen and Andrea Riseborough in 2012, with the screenplay written by Bradby himself.
