About Jeremy Vine
Jeremy Vine appears daily on the award-winning daily programme, The Jeremy Vine Show on BBC Radio 2. It is now the most listened-to radio news programme in the UK, having overtaken BBC Radio 4’s flagship Today. He also presents Eggheads, a teatime staple which is now one of the longest-running quiz shows in British TV history.
Jeremy Vine began his career as a trainee reporter at the Coventry Evening Telegraph in 1986 after studying English Literature at Durham University. A magical time in the days of manual typewriters and hot metal presses the CET sold more copies than the Independent does now.
He then became a BBC news trainee and a Today reporter who amongst other things was ambushed by rebels in Croatia and nearly died. He then became a political correspondent during the nineties, the Johannesburg based Africa correspondent and a Newsnight presenter ― the most frightening assignment of all, working alongside the legendary Paxman.
These days aside from his regular radio and TV shows Jeremy now presents the graphics for all BBC election specials and was recently at the helm with David Dimbleby and Emily Maitlis for the 2017 General Election.
His autobiography It’s All News to Me tells the vivid story of 25 years at the BBC in his unmistakably lively and self-deprecating style. A review in the Daily Telegraph said:
“Jeremy Vine is the perfect diarist, because he is an exhibitionist who doesn’t mind looking stupid. So he has written a brilliant memoir detailing his adventures at the BBC, from political correspondent to the Today programme to number three at Newsnight to his present job on Radio 2. Vine is silly and joyful and he has written a silly and joyful book, which I adored.”
In 2015 Jeremy swapped the Swingometer for the Samba, as a hugely popular contestant on Strictly Come Dancing.
Named Speech Broadcaster of the Year at the Sony Awards in 2005 and 2011 and won Interview of the Year for the famous “head-in-hands” moment with Prime Minister Gordon Brown during the 2010 election.
On 7th September 2017, Jeremy published What I Learnt: What my listeners say and why we should take notice, a memoir punctuated by vivid anecdotes, laugh-out-loud moments and tips learnt via Eggheads and Strictly Come Dancing, Jeremy discusses his Radio 2 show and explains what it’s like to hit a button and hear – totally unvarnished and unspun – the voices of so-called ordinary people. And why they are not so ordinary after all.
