An Evening with Sir Trevor McDonald

Britain’s most popular newscaster reveals the stories behind his enthralling 46-year career for one evening at artsdepot. Voted by UK viewers as the country’s most trusted celebrity, Sir Trevor will enthral audiences with anecdotes from interviews with key politicians such as Nelson Mandela, Tony Blair, George Bush and Bill Clinton.

Sir Trevor McDonald began his television career in his native Trinidad after starting out with newspaper and radio work. In 1969, he joined the BBC World Service, and later the ITV news as a reporter in 1973 where he steadily rose through the ranks.

In 1980, he became ITV News’ Diplomatic Correspondent, and reported from a variety of world locations, including the USA and the Middle East. Through the 80s, he held Diplomatic roles for Channel 4 News, eventually becoming Diplomatic Editor of the programme. Then in 1989, he became presenter of News programmes on both Channel 4 and ITV.

In 1990, he began to present the ITN News At Ten, and then from 1999-2001 he presented the ITV Evening News at 6.30pm. In addition to news presenting, Trevor presents ITV’s current affairs programme “Tonight With Trevor McDonald”.

Sir Trevor will be interviewed by Sony Radio Award-winning DJ Nick Ferrari, host of LBC’s Breakfast Show. There will be an opportunity after the talk for audiences to ask questions in a post-show Q&A.
