Hamzah is the Editor of TRP. He was formerly a hard-news journalist who reported on politics, did investigative work, and occasionally went undercover. He now spends his days sitting at a desk, checking grammar and fielding calls from PR companies, which is totally fine and fulfilling. For sure. Yeah. He's also married with kids now so his wife and mother said he can't do risky things anymore.
