Veteran BBC broadcaster Rhod Sharp hosts 5 Live’s ‘Up All Night’ – described by the Washington Post as ‘arguably the best night-time show in the world’. In this in-depth interview, he argues media ‘balance’ is letting Donald Trump off the hook; reveals the secrets of the show’s production, including broadcasting from his Massachusetts home and uniquely intimate relationship with 1m listeners; discusses his commitment to the US and recent American citizenship; shares his best and worst day at work so far, and offers advice to ambitious journalists beginning their career.
