Jeremy Vine presents the appropriately titled Jeremy Vine Show on BBC Radio 2, daily between 12 & 2 and The Politics Show on BBC 1, Sunday’s at 12.00. He also presents his weekday morning current affairs programme Jeremy Vine on Channel 5. Before all this he presented BBC 2’s Newsnight.
A University of Durham graduate, Jeremy joined the BBC as a news trainee in 1987 and his apprenticeship saw him work in Belfast for two years, where he was occasionally drafted in to read the morning news bulletins. He also worked with Joan Bakewell as a researcher on Heart of the Matter. In 1989 he joined Radio 4’s Today programme as a reporter. There his assignments included a posting to Siberia, reporting on the Mafia, and from the Middle East. His other work included covering punishment beatings in Northern Ireland, and sheep-racing in Dorset.
Jeremy bided his time filling in for more high-profile presenters such as Michael Buerk and Brian Redhead before being appointed Political Correspondent under John Sergeant. During the 2001 election campaign he travelled the length and breadth of the UK in the Newsnight camper van encountering the likes of Jeffrey Archer who challenged him to a race down the beach at Brighton after Jeremy said the Tory party had become increasingly “elderly”. Jeremy turned up but Archer pulled out citing tiredness. During the same campaign, Peter Mandelson stormed out of an interview and John Major once told him ‘You’re a very impatient boy’.
Jeremy’s is perhaps proudest of his report from South Africa, when his story about police brutality led to twenty-two officers being suspended. He’s won numerous awards for his reports but on BBC Radio 2, listeners are more likely to hear about his taste for The Smiths and Joy Division, and his hope that Chelsea will win the Premiership before 2065. He loves the films of Hitchcock and the poems of WH Auden.
Jeremy also chairs conferences and hosts award shows.
