Lincoln Live Lounge - Jon Snow

Event Series

The Lincoln Live Lounge is a regular series of livestreamed, interactive talks featuring a variety of special guests alongside University of Lincoln staff, students and alumni. Conversations cover a diverse range of topics relevant to anyone considering higher education, whether that’s exploring graduate careers in particular industries or tips on the university application process.

From the fall of the Berlin Wall and the release of Nelson Mandela, to the War in Iraq and Barack Obama's inauguration, legendary journalist Jon Snow has reported on some of the biggest new stories of the last three decades. Best known as the longest-running presenter of Channel 4 News, Jon will share his experiences and advice in a very special Live Lounge.

Schoolchildren, sixth formers, and college students are invited to submit their questions for a chance to meet the renowned broadcaster, whose accolades include Royal Television Society awards for Journalist of the Year (2006) and Presenter of the Year (2009), as well as a BAFTA Fellowship (2015).

Jon said: “I’m very pleased to be joining the Lincoln Live Lounge. I’ve been involved with education in various capacities for many years and relish the opportunity to share my thoughts and knowledge with young people, and I’m very much looking forward to being interviewed by the next generation of journalists.”

You can follow along live at home on our website, YouTube, or social media, and ask questions in the chat for real-time answers from our online panel and special guests.

Students are invited to submit their questions in advance by emailing
