Nick Wallis Biog

Nick is a regular correspondent for BBC1’s The One Show and an ITV news reporter. He also fronts the Criminals: Caught on Camera series which first appeared on Channel 5, and has subsequently been sold around the world.

He started his media career in radio at Xfm in 1997 before moving to BBC Oxford where he worked as a travel and sports reporter. It was here his potential as a journalist was spotted and he was trained in-house by the BBC. In 2001 Nick moved to BBC Three to be part of the channel’s expanding news service and in 2004 he joined Radio 1’s Newsbeat as a reporter. Whilst here he started a two year stint as a freelance presenter for BBC Radio 5 Live, regularly covering for Richard Bacon and Stephen Nolan, as well as the Weekend Breakfast and Up All Night team.

In 2007 Nick started reporting for ITV London and shortly afterwards, Channel 5 News and a couple of years later he was lured back to radio with the offer to present the BBC Surrey breakfast show and presented more than 2000 hours of live radio, covering local, national and international stories.

2013 saw Nick pick up the job of fronting Channel 5’s Criminals: Caught on Camera, working with police and council surveillance teams and confronting criminals. In 2014 he started reporting for BBC1’s The One Show, door stepping several unsavoury characters and regularly popping up in the studio for live chats. He also produced a high-rating episode of Panorama called Trouble at the Post Office before becoming a regular ITV national news reporter.

Nick’s main focus is crime and corruption but he also takes a keen interest in surveillance, alcohol, food supply/supermarkets, energy supply/sustainability, family dynamics, childhood, gender identity, literature and transgressive mindsets. He also has a wide knowledge of politics, sport and current affairs.
