The Keynote Speaker for the morning was veteran journalist Don Anderson. Don began his career writing for a local paper, was a sub-editor at the ‘Newsletter’ before joining the newsroom staff of the BBC just as The Troubles were breaking out. He moved on to Television Centre in London where he worked as a reporter. This took him to many of the world’s trouble spots including the Middle East, Far East and Africa. Later he was appointed first programme controller at Downtown Radio before returning to the BBC as Head of Radio.
The proceeds from the Breakfast will go to assist in the valuable work of Versus Arthritis.
