The Media of the United Kingdom is vibrant and dynamic, consisting of different types of communication media like television, radio, newspapers, magazines, and Web sites. With its diverse range of providers, the most prominent being the state-owned public service broadcaster, the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation), Britain is a fertile ground for flourishing media personalities. Francesca Unsworth, a British journalist and media executive who is currently the director of the BBC World Service Group is a significant media personality in the nation. Other prominent individuals associated with the BBC include Bruce Reynolds who became one of the youngest business reporters to be on National British Television at age 26.

Mike Neville—best known for his solid presentational style and witty banter—is also an important figure in the media of the U.K. This section provides you information about the life and works of British media personalities.
