The National Rail Awards 2019 Guest Host - Huw Edwards
Our host for the 2019 awards, back by popular demand, is Huw Edwards, anchor of Britain's most popular TV news bulletin, BBC’s Ten O'Clock News.
Originally a Parliamentary Correspondent, Huw has since won a BAFTA award, made a cameo appearance in the Bond movie Skyfall and commentated on Barack Obama’s inauguration from a Washington rooftop. He has interviewed Presidents, Prime Ministers and major figures in all areas of public life.
Huw combines newsroom duties with presenting major state events, from Trooping the Colour to The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. He has filmed The History of Wales and made documentaries on Gladstone and Mozart, among many others, and regularly visits schools as ambassador for BBC News School Report.
Huw has a natural warmth and authority as an awards host and conference chair. He is also a gifted raconteur with a ready wit, as demonstrated in the panel game Would I Lie To You?
