Conversations. Episode 76: Chris Tarrant

Dec 18, 2018, 05:19 PM

The man who started out doing the silly bits on regional TV and graduated to a 17 year stay on the UK’s then most influential commercial radio station – plus hosting one of the World’s most influential TV quiz shows.

In this hour of #Radiomoments ‘Conversations’, Chris Tarrant opens up about how he fell into the world of commercial radio, and then how he was appointed to the helm of Capital breakfast in London. He tells of how the programme evolved – his relationship with his boss - his questions about the endless meetings which often surround breakfast shows – and how it felt being effectively responsible for the Capital share price as the programme started to own London. He talks too of how Who Wants to be a Millionaire was devised and delivered – and shares his fears about the stroke he suffered on a journey back from Bangkok.

In his own words, this is the Chris Tarrant story.
