Ben Wright

Political Correspondent

Presenter and After Dinner Speaker Ben Wright has been a Political Correspondent for the BBC since 2008. After two years leading the political coverage for BBC Breakfast and the One O’Clock News, Ben was the Chief Political Correspondent for Radio 4 in 2012, appearing daily on the Today Programme, World at One and PM.

Ben’s latest book: Order, Order! The Rise and Fall of Political Drinking published in August 2016 is a real corker (pardon the pun)!

He has covered a general election, budgets, Presidential visits, Prime Ministerial trips and an expenses scandal. Ben spent 2013 in the United States as a Washington Correspondent for the BBC. There he covered stories such as President Obama’s inauguration and the Boston bombing. Ben sometimes presents The World This Weekend on Radio 4 and has reported from India, Afghanistan, the United States and Europe.

Born in Birmingham, Ben studied Modern History at St Peter’s College, Oxford.
