Simon Thompson |CONTRIBUTOR

I’m a freelance journalist, producer and broadcaster originally from the UK but now living and working in Los Angeles. I have worked for, with, and alongside, some of the biggest brands in the industry including the BBC, ITN, Channel 5, Bloomberg TV, Yahoo!, MSN, Total Film, Empire magazine, The Sun, London Evening Standard, The Independent, Entertainment Weekly, Capital Radio and was Showbiz Editor for Global Radio's Heart brand - the largest commercial radio brand in the UK. I also launched and was the Entertainment Producer for UK TV channel London Live producing a nightly, live prime time entertainment show. I also wrote, produced and presented the daily movie show, Inside Hollywood, for Channel 5 and 5USA. As a journalist I have interviewed the biggest names in the industry – the list of who I HAVEN’T interviewed is much shorter. As a critic his reviews have featured in international press campaigns for many major movies as well as in text books for use in colleges and schools. I guess I’m a nerd but I’m proud of it. I’m on Twitter @ShowbizSimon.
