Mini Bio (1)

Richard Whitmore was a familiar face on UK Tv well into the early nineties. One of the BBC's top news anchormen come stalwarts come general nice guy he retired as a new caster after many many years of long and trusted service.

He is one of only a handful of BBC anchor men to have at one time or another presented all bulletins from the early morning, morning, afternoon, early evening and late evening news.

Richard decided to retire from newscasting and focus on his love affair with the stage. Until that point he was a well liked presenter with audiences and colleagues alike. He now runs his own theater group.

Since retiring Richard has worked as presenter for Travel Tv on the Satellite Television Newtorks and you can still see him crop on TV from time to time normally playing a newsreader ironically enough in film or TV dramas.
