Firmly established at the very pinnacle of the UK’s opinion-forming journalists and TV presenters, Mariella Frostrup has defied every attempt to pigeonhole her skills and talents. As a result, she has been free to work on a variety of programmes and for a number of publications, including The Observer.
Having enjoyed a long career in television, she has continued to impress with her intelligent, accessible screen presence in programmes including Panorama and Question Time, as well as those covering movies and the arts.
Currently the presenter of The Big Painting Challenge for BBC1 and Open Book for Radio 4, she combines her TV and radio careers with that of a prolific journalist. She writes a weekly dilemma column for the Observer and a monthly travel column for The Telegraph.
As a respected arts critic, she has sat on the judging panel for various awards, including the Booker Prize, the Orange Prize for Fiction and the Evening Standard Film Awards, among others.
Her distinctive voice means that she is regularly asked to provide voice-overs, and her eloquent style means that she is a talented presenter, keynote speaker and moderator.
"The breakfast was a major success and credit must be attributed to you (Mariella Frostrup), as your contribution was very informative and very well received. It was certainly our privilege that you could join us."
