Carol Malia

Carol is the presenter of the BBC's nightly news programme in the North East and Cumbria.

Jeff Brown

Jeff joined Look North as the programme's main sports presenter in 2003. He had been with Tyne Tees TV for the previous six-and-a-half years, sitting alongside one of his heroes - legendary anchorman Mike Neville - to co-present North East Tonight.

Jeff began his journalistic career in 1982 as a trainee reporter with the Birmingham Post and Mail. In 1986 he returned home to the North East to be a sports writer for The Journal, moving into television in 1996. In June, 2009 he took over as the programme's main presenter for 10 months, covering for Carol's maternity leave.

Paul Mooney

Paul is Weather Team Leader for the BBC in the North East and Cumbria and had 17 years service with the Met Office prior to joining the BBC.

He loves his job, because no two days are ever the same. When he arrives for work he has no idea if he will end up in the studio that evening, or, be delivering the forecast from a jet ski race at the Tees Barrage, a Roman re-enactment on Hadrian’s Wall or from a rowing boat in the middle of Cumbria’s Talking Tarn.

And, in case you wondered, it’s a Clydebank accent!

Trai Anfield

I’m Scottish, but you can't beat living and working in the North East and Cumbria! For me, broadcasting is the happy result of an accident.

I was a countryside ranger when a car crash left me with ME for several years. I studied with the Open University, graduating in Environmental Science. Post graduate qualfications followed at the Met Office, then my BBC dream job.

It’s interesting, with "the science bit" and the creative fun of TV and radio. I also work on documentaries, my proudest moment was standing in for Sir David Attenborough on the BBC Blue Planet Live tour.

Hannah Bayman

Hannah grew up in the North East and worked for the BBC all over the country, before she was asked to join the team back home at BBC Look North.

She has a degree in Journalism from City University in London and undergraduate qualifications in meteorology, planetary science and astronomy. As well as presenting the weather, Hannah films and edits news reports for Look North and regularly presents the 8pm news bulletin.

When not at work she enjoys star-gazing, running and eating fruit dipped in white chocolate. Hannah says: “Live television is great fun. I love doing outside broadcasts in wild weather – it’s exhilarating.”
