Editor of BBC Radio 4 Today Programme

Former Editor of London Evening Standard (2012-2017)

First female Editor of The Sunday Telegraph

Sarah Sands is the current editor of BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme and the former Editor of the London Evening Standard.

Sarah initially trained with The Sevenoaks Chronicle before moving to the Evening Standard, firstly as Editor of the Londoner’s diary before taking further posts as Features Editor and Associate Editor.

She joined The Daily Telegraph in 1996 as Deputy Editor under Charles Moore. She later assumed responsibility for the Saturday edition. Her success here led to her being appointed the first female Editor of the Sunday Telegraph in 2005.

In February 2009 it was announced that she would be returning to the London Evening Standard as Deputy Editor. She took over as Editor three years later after Geordie Greig’s departure. Her time as Editor was one of great success as she led its resurgence and turned the free paper into profit.

At the start of 2017, she accepted the opportunity to edit BBC Radio 4’s Today programme; a role she began in May 2017. The former Chancellor George Osborne subsequently took over her role at the Standard.

Sarah’s talks revolve around current affairs and politics but also trust in media, a particularly pertinent issue in an era of ‘fake news’.
