Burst Radio

Radio 2 presenter and TV host to give an intimate talk about his life, work and love of radio.

Top radio presenter and journalist Jeremy Vine is appearing at Bristol University Students’ Union on Tuesday 24th April. The event has been organised by Radio Academy South West Branch and is being held at the home of the university’s student radio station, Burst Radio.

The evening will also include input from John Myers, well-known British radio executive, consultant and presenter. John will be giving us insight from his many years of experience in the industry. Both guests will also be sharing their advice to aspiring journalists in the audience.

Jeremy joined the BBC in 1987 as a News Trainee and has since been a presenter of Newsnight, political correspondent at Westminster, reporter on the Today programme and Africa correspondent based in Johannesburg.

He is one of only four presenters in the history of Panorama, the world’s oldest current affairs
programme. His recent special on the Dewani case, Panorama: The Honeymoon Murder, drew one of Panorama’s highest ever audiences (4.6m, peaking over 5m).

Early in 2003 Jeremy took over the news and music slot on BBC Radio 2 and has twice won Speech Broadcaster of the Year in the prestigious Sony Radio Academy Awards. He is also presenter of Points of View and Eggheads (the cult quiz show on BBC2).

The event is being held in the Students’ Union Bar 100. Tickets for non-members of the Radio
Academy are £10 and must be registered in advance at www.radioacademy.org. Further details for the event can be found at http://bit.ly/I2lAYZ.
