Eleanor Garnier is a political reporter at the BBC, mainly working on the Daily and Sunday Politics Show.
Garnier thought she’d end up doing a job in sport but work experience at Channel 4 News during a university summer holiday changed all that.
After studying Politics and Philosophy at the University of Leeds she went to the School of Journalism at City University in London.
Her first job in journalism was at the commercial radio station Leicester Sound. During her year there she reported for IRN from Praia da Luz in Portugal one year on from the disappearance of Madeleine McCann.
Eleanor’s first job at the BBC was at Radio Leicester where she became the political reporter before moving to become a video journalist at BBC East Midlands Today. She’s also reported for Radio 4’s Today in Parliament and BBC Breakfast.
