About Torin

Torin was the BBC as media correspondent from 1989 until his retirement in 2013. He has reported on the work of six BBC director generals, six BBC chairmen and a dozen cabinet ministers responsible for broadcasting and press issues.

He covered the royal family's "annus horribilis" in 1992, the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, and the ongoing debate over press and privacy. He has reported on the birth of BSkyB and the growth of the Murdoch empire, the ITV licence auction and mergers, and more than one BBC crisis.

Before joining the BBC, he worked for the Independent Broadcasting Authority, the Times, the Economist and the Independent, and presented LBC Radio's media show.

Torin studied history at the University of Warwick and is married with three children. He was awarded an MBE in the 2013 New Year's Honours list for services to the community in Chiswick.

David Sillito is now BBC News media correspondent.
