About Robert Peston
Since 13 February 2006 (a date etched forever in my memory) I have been the BBC’s business editor.
The move into broadcasting was a big one for me, because for the previous 24 years I’d been a print journalist. My previous roles have included financial editor of the Financial Times, political editor of the FT and city editor of the Sunday Telegraph.
I’ve won a few awards (including Wincott Financial Journalist of the Year, and the What the Papers Say Investigative Journalist of the Year), and I’ve written a book about Gordon Brown (Brown’s Britain) which attracted a bit of attention and was described by Sir Howard Davies (the director of the London School of Economics) as being of "unusual political significance".
I’m a lifelong Arsenal supporter, not one of the monstrous regiment of Gooners-come-lately, but will try to prevent that particular affiliation from encroaching here.
