Jeremy Vine presents the 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 TV. He is a former presenter of BBC 2’s Newsnight.
A graduate of the University of Durham he worked on Palatinate, the student newspaper. Jeremy joined the BBC as a news trainee in 1987 and his apprenticeship saw him work in Belfast for two years, where he was sometimes drafted in to read the morning news bulletins. He worked with Joan Bakewell as a researcher on Heart of the Matter. In 1989 Jeremy joined Radio 4’s Today programme as a reporter. His assignments included a posting to Siberia, reporting on the Mafia, and from the Middle East. Domestically he covered everything from punishment beatings in Northern Ireland to sheep-racing in Dorset.
Jeremy deputised 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 the suspension of twenty-two officers. Over the years he’s won numerous awards for his reporting 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 has a love for the films of Alfred Hitchcock and the poems of W H Auden.
Jeremy also chairs conferences and hosts award shows.
