Nick Ferrari is the presenter of LBC’s ‘Breakfast Show’, weekdays from 7am to 10am.
His show is a unique mix of the day’s top news stories, regular guests and live callers with campaigns on behalf of Londoners.
Think of any major news story from the marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana to the present day and the chances are that Nick Ferrari has been involved in covering it for either print or radio.
From being a news reporter on the Sunday Mirror in 1981, Nick Ferrari went on to a range of newspaper posts including:
- ShowBiz Reporter at The Sun
- Editor of The Sun’s ‘Bizarre‘ gossip page
- Editor of the News of the World’s ‘Sunday Magazine’
- Assistant Editor of The Daily Mirror
If they’ve been in the spotlight, then it is more than likely that Nick Ferrari has interviewed them. Among the names are Harrison Ford, Elton John, David Bowie and Arthur Scargill to name but a few…
In 1989, he was instrumental in the launch of Sky News 24 hour channel, being the second person to be hired by Rupert Murdoch. First, he was the Editor, and after two years, he was promoted to the post of Vice President, News and Programming, of Fox TV in New York USA.
After three and a half years of success in the USA, Nick returned to the UK as Director of Programmes for the launch of the off-beat cable channel L!VE TV, owned by the Mirror group of newspapers. At that time he renewed his friendship with media mogul, Kelvin MacKenzie, whom he had known since he was five-years-old. He also renewed his friendship with David Banks with whom he went on to present his first-weekend breakfast show on LBC.
On-screen, Nick can be seen as a regular panellist on Sky News’ debate show The Pledge.
As an after-dinner speaker, Nick’s presentation is a hilarious and entertaining romp through his life and times – with ‘behind the microphone’ stories of the rich and infamous.
