Philip is one of the world’s leading mobile journalists and Digital Native Content Editor at RTÉ, Ireland’s national public service broadcaster. During a career in journalism spanning two decades, he has reported on a wealth of stories at home and abroad. Highlights include covering the Olympic Games in London and Rio, the Oscars, the refugee crisis and a rare assignment to Tibet.
Philip has consistently pushed the boundaries of “mojo” storytelling and has shot a multitude of news reports for RTÉ on his iPhone. He now leads a small team of mojo’s at the Irish broadcaster. The team creates original “digital first” stories on mobile devices for audiences which are increasingly consuming content on their phones.
Philip believes this is an exciting time for mobile journalism, with the potent combination of audience behaviour and technology changing how news is gathered, packaged and distributed.
