Although Bill qualified as a teacher, his first job was working for BBC Local Radio for 4 years where he hosted numerous shows including a news and current affairs morning programme. He then moved to television to present many regional programmes for ITV before fronting Timekeepers, a general knowledge daytime quiz show for BBC One. He is experienced in presenting corporate videos and events, and voicing commercials and non broadcast videos. With his teaching background and broadcasting career, he enjoys the role of mentor and trainer in all aspects of media production. Until July 2021, Bill was the lead presenter on the RT UK News Channel based in Westminster, London.
He fronted 4 hours of live daily programmes that included interviews with politicians, economists,national newspaper columnists, lobby groups and those caught up in the daily news agenda. During President Obama’s high profile visit to Moscow, he hosted 12 hours of live programming from Red Square over two days – without autocue. The output was nominated in NEW YORK for the 2010 INTERNATIONAL EMMY AWARD FOR NEWS & CURRENT AFFAIRS, in the Best News Category along with Al-Jazeera and Sky News. Since then Bill has been invited to participate as a judge for the awards. He also presented coverage of a meteorite crashing into central Russia and it won the BEST INTERNATIONAL NEWS AWARD at the 2013 Monte Carlo TV Festival competing against Sky News, CNN and AL Jazeera. Then in 2015 he fronted another nomination for BEST INTERNATIONAL NEWS AWARD… again at the Monte Carlo TV Festival, competing against Sky News, CNN and CBC.
