Jeremy Vine established his reputation as a smooth-talking but tough presenter on Newsnight. He now presents the lunchtime show on Radio 2, and his own chat and magazine show on Channel 5. He hosts Eggheads and Crimewatch and pops up with a range of graphic wizardry whenever there’s an election.


Jeremy joined the BBC as a news trainee. His first reporting assignments were on Radio 4's Today programme, covering issues as diverse as punishment beatings in Northern Ireland and sheep-racing in Dorset. He then took up the reins as a political correspondent, under John Sergeant. One of Jeremy’s early reports was an award-winning exposé of South African police brutality, which led to twenty four officers being suspended.


In a lighter vein, he was famously challenged by Jeffrey Archer to a race on Brighton beach, after remarking that the Tories had become elderly. Archer pulled out, complaining of ‘tiredness’.


In his long and varied career Jeremy has also guest presented The One Show, fronted Panorama, and tackled the opinions of listeners and viewers on Points of View. He has also picked up a Sony Award for Speech Broadcaster of the Year.
