The Canadian born Sky News Correspondent Poppy Trowbridge (latterly Consumer Affairs Correspondent having been moved out of her City role), who at the start of her tenure at Sky News delighted audiences, as her mid-atlantic drawl gamefully vocally mangled her way through her early on-air City reports, is leaving Sky to alarmingly become a Special Adviser [SpAd] to the Chancellor Phillip Hammond.
We say alarmingly, as some Treasury SpAds' end up as front bench MPs, essentially as they know where all the financial bodies are buried! Poppy joined Sky News in 2012 as Business and Economics Correspondent before being moved over to her consumer role.
Prior to Sky, Ms Trowbridge was a Correspondent for several years with Bloomberg Television.
