John Suchet presents the best recordings of orchestras, choirs and soloists from across the UK and around the world weekday evenings in The Classic FM Concert. Before joining Classic FM, John was best known as one of the country’s most popular television newscasters and reporters. As an ITN reporter he covered major world events, including the Iran revolution, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and the Philippines revolution.
He has interviewed Presidents, Prime Ministers, Oscar-winning actors and actresses, politicians of all hues, Olympic medallists, criminals, a murderer on death row in Florida, and countless other men and women who have found themselves in the news. As a newscaster he regularly presented all ITN news bulletins, including News at Ten.
Since leaving the world of television news, John now devotes his time to his lifelong hobby, classical music, and in particular to the life and work of Beethoven. He has published six books on the great composer.
