A Life in Broadcasting

'A Life in Broadcasting: Celebrities, Wars and All' By Clinton Rogers

Clinton Rogers is an award-winning journalist and broadcaster who started his career almost fifty years ago. He has worked in local newspapers and in radio and television, for both ITV and the BBC.

 When he retired in 2020 it was after nearly forty years working for the BBC, mainly in his home county of Somerset.

However retirement hasn’t meant he’s had a rest, instead he’s spent the time writing memories of his time in broadcasting and has collated these into a book, with all proceeds donated to the hospice.

We can’t express our gratitude enough, the book is due to be released in the autumn but you can pre-order your copy today.

Clinton is a wonderful ambassador for the hospice, forever our friend. He has not been afraid to speak up for the work we do and, as a true reporter, sometimes ask the hardest questions. We are truly grateful that the proceeds from this book will help us to enable patients and their families not only to have time to reflect on their memories but have a chance to make new ones.

Clinton has won three Royal Television Society Awards for investigative journalism. He has interviewed senior politicians, including Prime Ministers, as well as countless celebrities. He has reported from two war zones and also covered one of the world’s worst humanitarian disasters in Bangladesh. It has, he says, been a career rich in colour that has given him ‘opportunities money can’t buy’.

In this book he shares his experiences reporting on everything from warfare to wildlife, from famine to festivals. Outside of work, he talks about riding America’s Route 66 on a Harley Davidson and playing in a band, recreating the music of the Everly Brothers.

Clinton is kindly donating 100% of the proceeds of each book to St Margaret’s Hospice Care. This has been made possible by Wilkie May & Tuckwood who have generously covered all costs associated with publication and promotion. Clinton’s aim is to raise as much money for St Margaret’s Hospice Care, a charity close to his heart.
