Episode notes

Fascinated by the new local commercial station in his home town of Bradford in the ‘70s, Roger was eager to play his part in that young Pennine Radio. The BBC then swiftly called, taking him first to Lincolnshire and then to BBC Radio Northampton, where his voice delivered the station’s first news bulletin.

In this edition of ‘Conversations’, Roger Mosey tells of his rise through the BBC ranks, from Editorship of PM and Today through to heading BBC 5 Live, running the highly-regarded Olympics coverage and taking his place around the BBC top table in what turned out to be its most challenging spell.

Speaking from his new home, as the Master of Selwyn College, Cambridge, this is the Roger Mosey story - in his own words.

Roger’s book ‘Getting Out Alive’ is an insightful read - and available now, published by Biteback.
