Evan Davis was the BBC’s economics editor from 2001 until 2008, when he went on to become a presenter on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme. In 2014 he became a main presenter on BBC2’s Newsnight, replacing Jeremy Paxman.
Davis also presents the BBC2 venture-capitalist programme Dragons’ Den, as well as The Bottom Line, a business conversation show, on BBC Radio 4. His book Post-Truth, subtitled Why We Have Reached Peak Bullshit and What We Can Do About It, is to be published later this month.
