Martyn Lewis CBE is a British journalist and newsreader who presented a multitude of programmes for BBC News in a thirteen year stint working for the corporation.
Martyn was the first presenter for the One O’Clock News, before going on to present both the Six O’Clock News and the Nine O’Clock News. Martyn covered many of the biggest world news stories including the death of Princess Diana, where he played a pivotal role in the BBC’s coverage.
Prior to joining the BBC Martyn worked for ITN, and remained a TV fixture outside of the news presenting BBC2’s Today’s the Day and BBC One’s Crimebeat. Martyn has also authored seven books including Reflection on Success, which collected 67 interviews with famous people at key points in their lives. After leaving the BBC Martyn co-founded Teliris, a telepresence and videoconferencing company.
Since leaving the BBC, Martyn has worked with a wealth of charities for a number of great causes. He founded YouthNet in 1995 (now known as The Mix), a digital charity that uses videos, apps, social media, articles and Q&A sessions to provide inspiring stories and support for young people under the age of 25. Martyn also has vice-president roles at Hospice UK, Macmillan Cancer Support and Marie Curie Cancer Care.
A consummate professional speaker with a wealth of experience and great stories to tell, Martyn is a fantastic choice for an awards presenter or conference host.
