British television's most experienced news presenter

Peter Sissons is probably British television's most experienced presenter of News. For nearly forty years he has worked for ITN, Channel Four, and the BBC- presenting all the main terrestrial bulletins, and a host of special programmes on major events. He also succeeded Sir Robin Day as presenter of the BBC's flagship discussion programme, Question Time.

His latest career move is from the BBC's Ten O'Clock News, to BBC News 24- a challenge because 24-hour continuous news is the one news area in which Peter has not yet worked.

When Channel 4 was launched in 1982 Peter was chosen to present their 7pm flagship news programme and in 1984 he was named by the Broadcasting Press Guild as the "Best Front of Camera Performer". During his time as anchor, Channel 4 News won an unprecedented three consecutive BAFTA awards and in 1988 Peter was awarded the Royal Television Society's "Judges Award" for his work on the programme.


Peter Sissons is an experienced and accomplished presenter and moderator of corporate events. From conferences involving several thousand, to more intimate management seminars and round-table discussions. Peter specialises in adapting the famous Question Time format for corporate use and is widely recognised as one of the safest pair of hands on the conference platform.

The client has been hugely complementary all round. Peter’s contribution as presenter provided the necessary gravitas we were looking for and reflected the seriousness of the subject matter. He was charming, genuinely interested in the subject matter ad his professionalism and experience shone through. A real pleasure to work with.
