Sam Bradpiece

I am a broadcast and print journalist currently based in Cape Town, South Africa. 

I currently work as a foreign correspondent for France 24. I have pitched, produced and edited news and long-form pieces from South Africa, Ivory Coast and Ghana. This role includes live hits and recorded pieces to camera. I led our English-language coverage of the 2020 presidential election in Ivory Coast and coordinated both English and French coverage for elections that same year in Ghana. 

I have also worked as a field producer with CNN - notably during the Notre Dame fire in Paris and during a number of Gilets Jaunes protests. This role mostly entailed producing live hits, news-gathering, and pitching interviews. 

I have filed written features for The Washington Post (as a member of the Talent Network), CNN, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Vice News, The Christian Science Monitor and others. 

I speak English and French but am most comfortable delivering TV and radio pieces in English. 

You can find a samples of my TV and written work here:
