Nick Robinson has been the BBC’s Political Editor since October 2005. He returned to the BBC where he began his career after spending just under 3 years as Political Editor of ITV News.
Nick is a rare example of someone who’s switched from working behind the camera to working in front of it. He joined the BBC as a production trainee in 1986 and worked on This Week, Next Week, Newsround, and Crimewatch. He joined On the Record as an assistant producer and worked his way up to become Deputy Editor. He then moved to Panorama where he was Deputy Editor for three years.
In 1996 Nick moved in front of the camera to become a political correspondent, covering his first General Election for BBC Radio in 1997. He was BBC News 24’s Chief Political Correspondent from 1999 to 2002, also presenting Westminster Live on BBC TWO, analysing Prime Minister’s Questions, and BBC News 24’s Straight Talk and One to One interview programme. He moved to ITV News in 2002.
Nick studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at University College, Oxford.
