Everyone is welcome to join us on Zoom, but please register in advance to secure your place using the link below.
Martin is a former BBC News and Sky News presenter who has covered many of the biggest breaking news stories of the last 30 years or more, from the Gulf War, Iraq War and Israel-Lebanon conflict to the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, the Boxing Day tsunami in the Indian Ocean, Hurricane Katrina, successive general elections, and the whale that got stranded in the River Thames.
He has presented on many of the regional BBC radio stations and can currently be heard every weekday morning on LBC News 24.
Martin is also Chair of Governors at St George's School, Windsor Castle, and an advisor on chorister recruitment and senior lay-steward at St George’s Chapel.
What will we be discussing?
The Conversation takes the format of an informal conversation with our Chief Executive, Canon Dr Ed Newell, followed by an open question-and-answer session.
Martin will be talking candidly about his life as a news anchor, and offering insights into the world of broadcasting and breaking news, and recent trends affecting the industry.
