About

Georgia Coan is an award-winning podcast producer, investigative journalist, and presenter who currently works in the BBC News Podcast Unit where she produces the daily news podcast Newscast.

She has produced and reported for award-winning podcasts like Radio 4’s Beyond Today and BBC New’s youth podcast The Next Episode. Her stories have been featured on BBC Newsbeat, Radio 4 You and Yours and online.

Georgia has covered topics such as grief, mental health, extremism, and true crime. She specialises in stories aimed at underserved communities and audiences in the U.K.

Georgia has covered stories about the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller Community, a community often underrepresented in mainstream media. 

Before working in podcasts, she was a digital and radio producer for BBC Three Counties where she trained as an apprentice from 2016 to 2018. She then went on to work on the pilot for Radio 4’s Beyond Today podcast where she became one of the founding producers.

Georgia grew up in Luton, but is currently working in London. She’s extremely proud of her working-class roots, and champions for class diversity in the media industry, both on-air and behind the scenes.

She recently set up the digital network ‘The Class Room’ on Instagram which offers support and advice to working-class creatives in all areas of the media industry.

Georgia aspires to be a reporter and broadcaster in long-form documentaries and podcasts, inspired by Louis Theorux and Stacey Dooley (who is from her home town).

Outside of work, Georgia enjoys watching crime dramas and documentaries, going to music gigs and the theatre, making TikTok videos, and drinking excessive amounts of tea.
