Nick Owen

Nick has worked in regional and national television since the late seventies. He came to national prominence in 1983 as one of the first faces to appear on breakfast television in Britain. Nick was born in 1947 and educated at Shrewsbury School. He was awarded a BA (Honours) in Classics at Leeds University. His career in journalism started on the Doncaster Evening Post. He then worked on the Birmingham Post and what was then BBC Radio Birmingham before joining ATV Network’s sports department – covering the World Cup in 1982.

He has presented BBC Midlands Today since 1997.

Nick is a father of four grown up children. He’s a huge football and cricket fan. He’s a past President of Derbyshire County Cricket Club and current chairman of Luton Town Football Club. In 2004, Nick published his autobiography, “In the Time of Nick.”

Nick said, ‘I was approached to become involved with Edward’s Trust back in the early nineties. I had recently come to work in Birmingham to present Good Morning with Anne and Nick from the BBC studios at Pebble Mill. As a father of four, I was inevitably touched by the heart breaking story of Edward Dent. I had absolutely no hesitation in accepting the charity’s kind invitation to become a patron. I hugely admire the charity’s aims.
