Jon Snow

Biography:Jon Snow (born September 28, 1947 in Ardingly, Sussex) is a British television newscaster on Channel 4 News, produced by ITN.

His father was an Anglican clergyman and schoolteacher, and he was brought up at Ardingly College, a minor public school where his father was headmaster. However, he later attended a St Edward's School in Oxford, another public school. His father would later become Bishop of Whitby.

After mixed success in his first attempt to pass his A level qualifications he moved to Yorkshire Coast College, Scarborough later where he obtained the necessary qualifications to gain a place studying law at University of Liverpool. However, he did not complete the degree, being rusticated for his part in a student protest, and opting not to return.

After leaving Liverpool he worked for New Horizon Youth Centre, a day centre for young drug addicts in central London - an organisation he has remained involved with and subsequently became chairman of. He then joined the radio station LBC as a journalist, and then moved on to news organisation, ITN in 1976. In 1979 he was briefly engaged to fellow ITN journalist Anna Ford, who later became an equally high profile television news presenter.

He served as ITN's diplomatic editor (1986-1989) and Washington correspondent (1983-1986) before becoming the main presenter of Channel 4 News in 1989. He has won several RTS Awards - two for reports from El Salvador, one for his reporting of the Kegworth air disaster, and two as "Presenter of the Year".

One of the most memorable moments of Snow's presentation of the Channel 4 news came in 2003 when at the height of the "dodgy dossier" affair Alastair Campbell walked into the studio to rebut statements by the BBC. With no notes or preparation he questioned Campbell about the affair.

Snow is a trustee of the National Gallery and, in this capacity, sits as a trustee also of the Tate Gallery. In the released papers of trustee meetings of the latter institution, Snow was the only trustee to seriously question the gallery's purchase of The Upper Room by Chris Ofili.

In 2006 he returned to radio, presenting Jon Snow Reports on Oneword Radio, a weekly show and podcast.
