Charlene White presents ITV's London News. Born in Greenwich, London, to Jamaican parents, she graduated from the London College of Printing and went on to become the youngest senior journalist at the BBC, aged just twenty-two. She joined BBC Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra as a news reporter, during which time she interviewed people as diverse as Tony Blair, Kanye West, Jay-Z and Beyoncé. In 2008, she joined ITN as a newscaster and, in 2014, became the first black woman to present ITV News at Ten. Since 2014, she has appeared on ITV Lunchtime, Evening and Weekend News, and has been an occasional contributor to the Guardian. White cites Moira Stewart and Sir Trevor McDonald as important childhood inspirations.
