James Naughtie

Born 9 August 1951




Following 11 years in journalism, during which time he specialised as a political correspondent, Naughtie moved into radio as presenter of The Week In Westminster and then The World At One before joining the Today programme in 1994.

Naughtie is known for changing his interviewing style to match his guests. He is quoted as saying, "The funny thing about radio is that although people can't see it, it is extraordinarily intimate. The one thing you can't have is monochrome presentation."
