Longman has been a foreign correspondent for ABC news since 2017. Based in London, his work takes him all over the world -- to date over 30 countries and counting. He was the first US network reporter at the Thai cave where the soccer team went missing, and was the first to interview them after their rescue. In Syria, he was the first to gain a television interview with American ISIS bride Huda Mothana. From terror attacks in Sri Lanka, protests in Hong Kong, climate change in Antarctica, or earthquakes in Indonesia - and even a royal tour with Harry and Meghan around Australasia - Longman has covered some of the most important international events of our time. Prior to joining ABC, Longman worked at the BBC as the Beirut correspondent and a general news reporter. In a varied brief, he covered terrorist attacks across Europe, mental health issues and adolescent drug use. Longman started out at the age of 24, when as a young Arabic graduate he stationed himself in Syria at the beginning of the war. Embedded with activist networks as the protest movement developed, Longman wrote for a number of publications and helped arrange access for news organisations. Longman has been nominated for 3 News Emmy awards for work in Thailand and in the Middle East, and was nominated for the Royal Television Society 2016 Young Talent of the Year award. Longman was raised bilingual in French and English and speaks Arabic. He is a graduate in Arabic from the School of Oriental and African Studies and has a Masters of Science in Comparative Politics from the London School of Economics. « Read Less
