Jeremy Vine's Biography

Jeremy Vine presents the aptly titled Jeremy Vine Show on BBC Radio 2 as well as BBC1’s Points of View on Sundays, Eggheads on BBC2 and the graphics for all BBC Election Specials. He has also reported and presented for flagship BBC programmes Today, Panorama and Newsnight

Jeremy joined the BBC as a news trainee in 1987; 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 BBC Radio 4’s Today programme as a reporter. There his assignments included a posting to Siberia, reporting on the Mafia and from inside the Middle East. 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. Jeremy was widely acclaimed for his report from South Africa, when his story about police brutality led to 22 officers being suspended.

He has 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’s autobiography ‘It’s All News to Me’ was published last year and tells the fascinating story of the 25 years he has clocked up at the BBC in his unmistakably lively and self-deprecating style.
