The multiple Sony Award-winning presenter tackles topical issues for 5 Live, presents news bulletins, and fronted her own BBC2 show mixing journalism, debate and interviews.


Radio 5 Live’s Sony Award-winning presenter Victoria Derbyshire interviews the names behind the day’s news, sometimes making the headlines herself. She also expertly fields listeners’ calls, with natural warmth and a firm grasp of the story. She's also a regular host of BBC News bulletins and fronted her own eponymous BBC2 show mixing investigative journalism, debate, news and interviews.

After stints in local radio in Coventry and Manchester, Victoria was invited to co-present the network breakfast show - first with Julian Worricker and then Nicky Campbell. She has gone on to build a reputation for no-nonsense journalism both on radio and television, with credits from Watchdog and a series for BBC News Channel to The Apprentice - You’re Fired! The Bolton Wanderers’ fan is also a seasoned sports news reporter, covering two World Cups and the Olympic Games, and was a contestant on the twentieth series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here.
