Meet Chris Jackson
Every story we tell on Inside Out is so very different, sometimes heart-warming, sometimes shocking and best of all some of our stories are suggested by you.
If you think someone is up to no good then we're always glad to shine the spotlight on them. Some people don’t realise that as well as presenting the show I also produce some of our films.
It’s great to be behind the camera as well as in front. We certainly have fun when we invite guest reporters to tell a story close to their heart.
People often tell me that what they love about Inside Out is that you never quite know what will be on the show each week – but whatever it is, you're guaranteed to learn something new about what's happening in our part of the world.
It’s that same fascination that gives the Inside Out team a buzz – we never know what subject we'll be doing next or what fascinating people we're going to meet.
People always wonder about your vital statistics... so here are mine.
I was born in the North East. I moved to Germany aged five – hence no Geordie accent. After getting a German degree I trained as a journalist and started off in radio in the Midlands and Wales.
I came back to my native North East in 1986 when I joined BBC Radio Newcastle as the "Northumberland Producer" based in Alnwick.
I moved around a bit at the Beeb before joining Look North as a reporter and then a presenter. When Inside Out started I managed to get the job as the front man and I've been here ever since!
I love my job and I was honoured to be given the Presenter of the Year Award 2012 by the Royal Television Society North East earlier this year.
