Renowned presenter, author and scholar John Suchet was, until his retirement from ITN in March 2004, one of the country’s best known television newscasters. Before becoming a newscaster, John was a reporter from ITN, covering major events around the world. He has been honoured for both roles: Television Journalist of the Year 1986, and Television Newscaster of the Year 1996. John’s great passion away from the news is music, particularly the life and work of Beethoven. John can either speak about music or his life as a reporter and newscaster. He is also an experienced conference and awards host.
