Carolyn Quinn (b. 22 July 1961)[1] is a British journalist best known for her work on BBC Radio 4 as a political correspondent and for presenting the Today programme and PM.

Early life[edit]

Quinn attended St Joseph's RC Primary School in Crayford, Dartford Grammar School for Girls and the University of Kent where she obtained a degree in French. She trained as a teacher, gaining a PGCE at the Institute of Education in London before becoming a French teacher at a London comprehensive, but gave this up to be a ward clerk at Charing Cross Hospital. She joined Riverside Radio at the hospital.

Career[edit]

She freelanced before joining the Irish Post and was then selected for a BBC Local Radio trainee scheme. After training and two years at BBC Radio Solent from 1987-9, she became a BBC news correspondent at Westminster.

BBC Radio 4[edit]

Quinn was a presenter of the Today programme from 2004 to 2008, co-presenting her last programme with James Naughtie on Wednesday 26 March 2008. As the programme closed, she invoked Tony Blair's comments upon leaving office as British Prime Minister, wishing well to "friend and foe alike" and referring to a "rollercoaster", indicating that her departure from the programme may have been less than entirely amicable. She presents PM on Saturdays, and covers the weekday edition when Eddie Mair is away. She has also presented Pick Of The Week several times and in January 2007 presented an edition of Woman's Hour.

Quinn became the regular presenter of Radio Four's The Westminster Hour from January 2007 following Andrew Rawnsley's departure in September 2006.

Personal life[edit]

Carolyn Quinn married Nigel Morris, deputy Political Editor of The Independent, and former political correspondent of the Daily Mirror, in Richmond upon Thames in June 2003.
