BBC Radio 2’s Jeremy Vine will be delivering the Masterclass at this year’s Radio Festival. The iconic broadcaster is undoubtedly both at the top of his game and at the top of the UK Radio industry. Tickets for the Masterclass are now on sale.
With multiple Sony Radio Academy Golds and many other accolades to his name, Jeremy Vine owns the mid-morning news-driven agenda, bringing a lightness of touch to each topic which absolutely connects with the audience, without editorial or journalistic compromise.
The Masterclass will feature 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 award-winning show on BBC Radio 2. He won ‘Speech Broadcaster of the Year’ at the 2005 and 2011 Sony Radio Academy Awards. 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’.
His appearance at the 2012 Radio Festival will offer a rare opportunity to understand what drives and motivates a great radio professional. If ever a journalist was qualified to offer a masterclass on the art of delivering news in an accurate, well targeted and highly engaging way, it’s Jeremy Vine.
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.”
