Matthew Champion

Matthew Champion is a journalist and editor with almost two decades of experience working in digital media.

At VICE News he oversaw global news operations and investigations as Editor-in-Chief, working with some of the world’s most talented journalists. He previously spent five years at BuzzFeed News working for the UK and World news teams, and before that worked for the Independent and Metro newspapers.

Matthew has experience of public speaking at major media events such as Web Summit in Lisbon and has 15,000 followers on Twitter.

Stories that he edited have been recognised with awards including the Pulitzer Prize, the Madeline Dane Ross award, a Mirror Award, and Overseas Press Club of America awards, among others, as well as being nominated for a Paul Foot Award in 2023.

Matthew has had a window into the inner workings of two of the biggest names in digital media – and a front-row seat for their collapse.
