Desmond John Humphrys is a British radio and television presenter, journalist, author, and the winner of many national broadcasting awards. From 1981 to 1987 he was the main presenter for the Nine O'Clock News, the flagship BBC news television programme, and since 1987 he has been a presenter on the award winning BBC Radio 4 programme, Today. He is also currently the host of the popular BBC Two television quiz show Mastermind.
Humphrys has a reputation of being a tenacious and forthright interviewer; nevertheless, occasionally politicians have been very critical of his style after being subjected to a tough interview on live radio.
