Ken Reid is Political Editor at UTV. His career as a journalist began at The News Letter in 1977, where he remained for seven years. This was followed by stints as the sports editor, and later editor, of the Sunday News, and reporting for the Cork Examiner.
Ken joined UTV in 1994. He says one of his most memorable moments was breaking the Ian Paisley retirement story in 2008.
He's a big fan of rugby (Ballymena to be precise), cricket and football (Everton FC) and loves music, especially blues.
His favourite motto is Everton FC's: "Nil satis nisi optimum"... Only the best is good enough.
