Justin Webb is a British journalist who has worked for the BBC since 1984.

Justin, former BBC North America Editor, began his broadcast career as presenter of major radio and TV news programmes – The World Tonight, BBC Breakfast News and the One O’Clock News. In 2009 he joined the Radio 4 Today programme team.

Justin is a graduate of the London School of Economics, where he edited the student newspaper. Fresh out of uni, he joined the BBC Graduate Scheme in Belfast and worked for BBC Radio Ulster.

After Radio Four’s Today Programme, he moved to BBC Television as a reporter as then as a Foreign Affairs Correspondent, when he was dispatched to report from Washington, Moscow and Jerusalem. During the Gulf War Justin was based in Saudi Arabia and also reported extensively from Bosnia.

As one the BBC’s top presenters, Justin has interviewed politicians, comedians, the Prime Minister, sportsmen, and top business figures.

In July 1999 he took up an appointment as Europe Correspondent for the BBC and was based in Brussels where he reported on the workings of the EC, the politics surrounding Britain’s decision on whether to join the single currency and the European Union.

In 2001 Justin took up the position of US Correspondent and moved to Washington. In 2007 he was made the BBC’s North America Editor, a role newly created in time for the American Presidential election the following year. He also presented regular pieces for CNN USA edition.

Justin Webb is an extremely assured conference chair and awards host, and a wonderfully engaging speaker. After dinner he uncovers the truth about America and Americans (as in his books Have A Nice Day and Notes on Them and Us) – and has great fun demonstrating some of the differences in interviewing styles between ‘Old’ and ‘New World’ journalists.

After Dinner

Justin chaired this conference exceptionally well. He was professional, prepared and brought a real energy to every session he was involved in. He was very well received by the delegates and built a good rapport over the two days.

UBM

Justin Webb was extremely accommodating. His speech was very appropriate, informative and humorous. He captured the audience completely, there was dead silence as they agreed, sighed and laughed in all the right places.

Confederation of British Industry

The feedback we've gathered has been universally positive - especially about choosing you to speak. And it's not all about content, as you know - engaging people is crucial, as you clearly did.
