Plenary session with Jon Snow, Channel 4 News Presenter
Wednesday 5 June, 12.30pm - 1.30pm
Before establishing himself as anchor of Channel 4 News, Jon served as Diplomatic Editor of ITN, covering summits in Washington and Moscow and numerous other international stories.
Frequently moving out of the studio, Jon reported from Germany when the Berlin Wall came down, and from South Africa when Nelson Mandela walked to freedom. He was also the only British journalist to be granted a full-length interview with Monica Lewinsky.
Jon has occasionally found himself at the centre of a story, whether by refusing to wear a poppy on camera or by criticising the media blackout of Prince Harry’s tour in Afghanistan.
Jon Snow has been named RTS Journalist of the Year, and received a BAFTA for Best Factual Contribution to Television. He is Patron of Prisoners Abroad and President of the Cyclists’ Touring Club.
