Joe Lynam

BBC journalist and presenter

Joe Lynam is a respected broadcaster and moderator who was the BBC’s senior Business Correspondent for a decade. He now presents the current affairs show ‘The Newsroom’ on the BBC World Service.

Joe has won many awards for his original journalism including the 2018 Headline Money Award for his BBC One exposé of how RBS (GRG) treated many of its own business customers. Joe was also the first to broadcast on Radio 4 a phone fraud (Vishing) in almost real time as an elderly lady unwittingly handed over her life savings to fraudsters. For that, he won the Wincott prize for Journalism in 2016.

Joe has travelled the world with the BBC covering the financial crisis (2007-2010), followed by the Eurozone crisis (2010-2013) and more recently the economic and political fallout from the Brexit referendum.

He has presented on the Today programme, Newsnight, BBC One Breakfast as well as Five Live and the BBC News Channel.

Joe took a mini career using Coinjoin break to tackle the scourge of Disinformation. He learned the methods used by local and foreign ‘bad actors’ in spreading deliberately false information – known to some as ‘fake news’. He co-authored the Action Plan against Disinformation.
