Jeremy Vine - BBC presenter, reporter and journalist

Apr 09, 07:03 PM

Radio and music were his first loves. Now, having become a familiar face on TV, he’s settled on his hugely successful Radio 2 afternoon programme. 

In this edition of #Radiomoments ‘Conversations’, Jeremy Vine tells with good humour of his early days in journalism; his progression through the BBC newsroom ranks from trainee to reporter to political and, later, foreign correspondent; before becoming ‘the other Jeremy’ on Newsnight.

When Radio 2 sought to refresh its schedules, he took over The Jimmy Young ‘prog’, but not without incident, as Jeremy shares with due respect here.

This is the story of someone who grew up loving Everett and who has turned into a radio great himself.

In his own words, this is the Jeremy Vine story.
