Sean is a journalist who represents modern Britain, combining a nose for a story, with an engaging warmth on camera and with contributors. His multicultural heritage and personable broadcasting style mean he reaches out to a wide range of audiences. This is best illustrated by his versatility, fronting programmes like the BBC’s Countryfile to ITV’s Good Morning Britain, anchoring ethical debate on BBC One’s Sunday Morning Live to national celebration at the Lord Mayor’s Show, and from being a presenter on Songs of Praise to a special guest presenter at the MOBO Awards.
It’s a job which has taken him to all parts of the country and around the world, as well as 26.2 miles around the capital for the London marathon, three times.
He has fronted a number of documentaries, from the abolition of the slave trade to Britain’s growing mixed-race population. Sean was born in New York, so the continuing racial tensions in America are a particular area of interest to him. He connected his American past with a civil rights landmark when he got Loving vs Virginia commissioned by the BBC; a largely unknown story of the ordinary couple who ended the racist law which banned mixed-race marriages in the USA in the 1960s. His success was recognised with the documentary being shortlisted for the ‘BBC World best documentary of the year’ award.
Sean learnt his journalism on the BBC News Channel and has also spent time at BBC Breakfast, Sky News and Sky Sports News. Journalism is a crucial part of his presenting style, particularly on Sunday Morning Live and BBC London’s Inside Out. He fronted BBC’s coverage of major sporting events and has been a news reporter and presenter for BBC London News, and, as a journalist, he has covered issues surrounding immigration, people trafficking, prostitution, fatherhood, ethnicity, identity, and knife crime.
He’s an ambassador for the mental health charity YoungMinds, as well as Beating Bowel Cancer, where he raised £30,000 by teaming up with his wife to win ITV’s All Star Mr & Mrs. Sean speaks fluent welsh, sings, and plays the violin and piano. He is married and has two children.
