Mark Carruthers

Book Mark Carruthers for your event since he's not only a radio and TV presenter but ideal for appearing at political, business and arts events.

Mark is one of Northern Ireland's best-known and most versatile broadcasters. He joined BBC Northern Ireland in 1989 and since then he has presented countless radio and television programmes. He currently presents The View and Sunday Politics - both on BBC1 NI - and fronts the popular political podcast Red Lines on BBC Sounds.

He has been nominated for four Royal Television Society awards for his work – in 2022, 2020, 2018 and 2003.

Mark studied political science at Queen's University Belfast, graduating in 1987. In 1989 he was awarded a Master's degree in Irish politics and in July 2019 he was awarded an honorary doctorate (DLit) by Queen's for distinction in broadcasting.

Beyond politics, Mark is a passionate advocate of the arts. He served on the Board of the Lyric Theatre in Belfast for almost fourteen years – eight of them as Chairman – and was a leading figure in the successful campaign to rebuild the theatre at a cost of over £18m.

He has published two books and was awarded an OBE for services to the arts in Northern Ireland in the 2011 New Year Honours List.
