Sam Hailes

Sam Hailes is deputy editor of Premier Christianity magazine. You can also hear him on Premier Christian Radio’s ‘The Profile’ where he interviews well known Christian leaders about their life and faith and on ‘Your News’ where he and a guest discuss the week’s top news stories from a Christian perspective with Premier’s head of news Marcus Jones.

 

After graduating with a BA (Hons) in Journalism in 2011, Sam freelanced for a variety of magazines and websites as a journalist, editor and social media manager before joining Premier.

 

Sam has interviewed hundreds of stars, leaders and trend setters in everything from entertainment to politics. Highlights have included conversations with adventurers Bear Grylls and Sir Ranulph Finnes, Christian leaders Tony Campolo and Elaine Storkey ,chart topper Owl City, racing driver Jaime Alguersuari and Grammy award winning artists including Israel Houghton, Mary Mary and Matt Redman. He’s written major cover stories for Premier Christianity on a variety of subjects including the refugee crisis in Lebanon and church growth in London.

 

When he’s not planning another major interview or feature article for the UK’s leading Christian magazine, Sam enjoys reading or running (he tries not to do both at the same time). He lives in south London with his wife Stacey. Together they’re attempting to travel the world, one holiday at a time.
