The Masterclass will include Jeremy talking through the career decisions that have led to his current position and the editorial judgement calls made on a daily basis for his Sony award-winning show on BBC Radio 2.

His 2010 election interview with Gordon Brown, when the Prime Minister put his head in his hands as he was played a recording where he called a voter a bigot, won Jeremy the Sony Radio Academy Award for ‘Interview of the Year’.

Jeremy started his radio career in local radio at Metro before moving into print journalism at the Coventry Evening Telegraph. A move to the BBC in 1987 set a course that would lead to his current role, initially moving from BBC Northern Ireland to BBC One, to the Today programme on Radio 4. In 1997 he became the Africa Correspondent based in Johannesburg, but travelling all over the country. That led to Newsnight and his current daily slot on Radio 2.

Jeremy said: “I’m very much looking forward to delivering this session. I’ve been lucky enough to have had a great run in radio to date. It’s a medium I love more than ever, and I aim to pass on as much of what I’ve learnt along the way as possible.”

Clive Dickens, Chair of the Radio Festival, said: “Jeremy’s Masterclass will undoubtedly be a stimulating session, packed with insightful knowledge and advice. He has had a successful broadcast career for more than 30 years and will be discussing some key points during his session. Jeremy is the best in the business and delegates will get a glimpse into his highly regarded career, professionalism and, ultimately, his passion.”
