Nick Ferrari – Controversial LBC Radio Presenter and Entertaining Guest Speaker
Nick Ferrari is the controversial and outspoken presenter of LBC 97.3FM’s ‘Breakfast Show’, weekdays from from 7 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 – ShowBiz Reporter at The Sun and Editor of the paper’s ‘Bizarre’ gossip page, Editor of the News of the World’s ‘Sunday Magazine’ and 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 US, Nick Ferrari returned to the UK as Director of Programmes for 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.
As a 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.
