Meet presenter Tim Donovan

Tim Donovan presenter of The Politics Show London
Tim Donovan is a very experienced broadcaster and he is looking forward to taking a fresh approach to politics.

Tim is currently a reporter and presenter on the BBC London News programme.

After training in newspapers, he started out as a political reporter on 'Around Westminster', before becoming a general reporter and specialist correspondent for BBC in the South East.

Political experience

Tim won 'Broadcaster of the Year' in the BT awards, 2001, for a report on Ken Livingstone's campaign to become mayor, having followed him around for a month with a digital video camera.

He won plaudits for his coverage of the Damilola Taylor murder trial in 2002.

Mistakenly calling Frank Dobson Ken Livingstone at the end of a 'live' interview once gained him a prized spot on Auntie's Bloomers. Tim has resolved to improve the quality of his research!

Away from politics

Tim has four kids and lives in south London. He is a school governor. In his spare time Tim enjoys holidays, football, reading and walking.

Join Tim Donovan on The Politics Show every Sunday at midday on BBC One.
