Jeremy Vine is one of the most successful broadcasters of recent years and in 2012 clocks up a quarter of a century at the BBC. In It's All News to Me, he takes a look back over his career from the very first day when he arrived at broadcasting house, (by coincidence an inauspicious news day - the fateful Black Monday of 1987.) Jeremy explains his big break as a Today programme reporter when he was fired at by a sniper during the early days of the war in Bosnia; he walks us through the corridors of Westminster in the 1990s when he was a political correspondent, trying to deal with the likes of Alastair Campbell and Peter Mandelson; he reflects on the steep learning curve that was his posting as African correspondent at the turn of the millennium; and his return to the UK where he was dubbed Paxman's "mini-me" on Newsnight. He also explains what it's like presenting Radio 2's lunchtime show and talking to 6 million listeners - people who, as he puts it "have better stories than we do." Written in Jeremy's unmistakably lively and self-deprecating voice, It's All News to Mepaints a vivid picture of what it's like to be trapped inside the BBC - arguably the most interesting organisation in the country - for 25 years. It's also about our obsession with news - just exactly how and why it happens - and the power of real life stories versus the media's desire to shape them.
