Jennie Bond has been a journalist for more than thirty years and has become one of the most familiar faces on television. Although she made her name as the BBC’s Royal Correspondent, she has a wide breadth of experience on general news and current affairs. This has helped make her a much sought-after host and facilitator of business debates and conferences.
For many years Jennie has also been a regular news presenter on BBC Television and a range of both documentaries and factual programmes.
She began her career in journalism after graduating from Warwick University in 1972. She worked on local papers as a reporter for five years before joining BBC Radio News. During the next few years she gained a thorough grounding in radio news, editing the main bulletins. She also worked as a producer on current affairs shows, including the very popular Woman’s Hour, and in light entertainment, with Noel Edmonds.
She returned to full-time reporting in 1986 with BBC Radio, covering major news stories. She also began her career as a presenter, anchoring among other programmes, the top current affairs show in the UK, Radio 4’s Today.
She moved to television in 1988. She has presented Breakfast News, the one o’clock and six o’clock news bulletins regularly, and is one of the most familiar faces on the BBC .
Few people have had a closer view of royal history through the last couple of decades and as the BBC’s Royal Correspondent she was at the heart of events that made headlines around the world: from the fairytale weddings to the adultery, the divorces and the deaths. She has ridden a royal roller coaster that has seen the monarchy almost brought to its knees before being swept up on the crest of a wave of national celebration for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.
Jennie’s first book Reporting Royalty shares details of her years keeping tabs on Britain’s Royal Family. It was published in September 2001 by Headline. In the Golden Jubilee year Carlton books published her commemoration of the Queen’s reign, Elizabeth, 50 Glorious Years.
