Biography

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. The Sony judges applauded her versatility and her “determination to get to the heart of the matter.”

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. In Singapore for the 2012 announcement, she admitted to ‘whooping unprofessionally’ at London’s success.
