Andrew Edwards

London, United Kingdom
I live in Kentish Town, north London and am a former BBC World Service radio reporter and producer, 1978 - 1984. I then went freelance and remained independent ever since but developed long term working relationships with a range of news organisations across news, sport and culture. This experience Read moreincludes senior roles in what is now APTN, Reuters and Capital Radio in London.
I am fluent in German and French and often broadcast or perform on stage as a press conference MC in German and English. I have presented and commentated live on track and field athletics for the past 30 years including Olympics and World Championships.
Clients in the sporting sphere include Eurosport, the marketing company IEC in Sports for international satellite feeds as well as reporting for VOA and the BBC.
I have always worked with and enjoy an international element to my reporting, rather than being a "Little Englander." As a reporter/producer for news and culture, I had a senior role for seven years in the UK Foreign Office funded TV news agency, British Satellite News (BSN) until the service was closed down in 2009 because of government cuts. My remit ranged from multiculturalism to art and historical exhibitions to London Fashion Week.
I currently report for VOA and also work on site for various sports events such as the Berlin Marathon, filing text, podcasts and video interview in English and German.
As a parallel activity, I have long experience as a translator from German into English, covering any area of general reporting as well as legal documents.
