Meet presenter Adrian Goldberg

Adrian Goldberg presenter of The Politics Show for the Midlands

Adrian Goldberg has many years of broadcasting experience and he is looking forward to taking a fresh approach to politics.

Born in Birmingham, Adrian attended his local University, graduating with a degree in English. After trying out various jobs he moved into the media.

He is best know for his role as an investigative reporter on BBC One's Watchdog. But he has presented many other television programmes including BBC One's Healthcheck, BBC Breakfast News and World Cup Desk. Adrian has also introduced programmes on BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio Five Live and BBC WM.

Adrian presents the breakfast programme on BBC WM, from 7 am to 10 am, Monday through Friday. Independent background

Adrian also has his own independent production company and has recently made two documentaries called 'Political Football' and 'The Whistleblower'.

His work in football didn't start there. Adrian founded Britain's first football fanzine, 'Off The Ball'. Despite his hectic schedule, he also manages to write a weekly newspaper column for the Birmingham Evening Mail.

Politics

Adrian is looking forward to making politics more accessible to a wider audience.

He says, "At the moment, the world of politics can seem like a closed shop, to which the general public aren't invited. They talk a funny parliamentary language calling each other honourable member, and there are all these strange ceremonies like Black Rod."

"The Politics Show is going to try and change this. The aim is to get information which helps people make their own minds up about politics".

"People want straight answers to simple questions, like how much tax am I going to pay, will my kids get a good education and if I get ill, will the NHS be able to treat me quickly?"

Away from politics

Away from his media work, Adrian's main passion is football. He's a season ticket holder at West Bromwich Albion Football Club, making regular trips to follow his favourite team.

His other main passion is food. Adrian enjoys cooking and eating out, claiming to know all the best curry houses in the Midlands!

Join Adrian Goldberg on The Politics Show every Sunday at midday on BBC One.
