TV News Show Host To Front Prog Awards

(Classic Rock) By night Gavin Esler presents one of the BBC's hardest-hitting current affairs shows. Later that night you might find him relaxing by listening to Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull or maybe even Testament.

But there's one night he won't be doing either. On September 5 he'll be hosting the inaugural Progressive Music Awards at London's Kew Gardens, run Classic Rock Presents Prog. "It's been a long time coming," Esler tells the Guardian. "For me, prog has always been essentially British it combines all our great and eccentric genius. It's time our quiet little secret was shouted about a bit more."

The journalist started with the BBC in 1977 and in the following decade he was in charge of the corporation's coverage of news in North America. He won a Royal Television Society Award for his work, and later received a Sony Gold Award. He's interviewed a number of world leaders and he's the author of five novels.
