Jon Snow Reddit AMA Reveals Channel 4 News Presenter's Fears For Broadcaster's Future

Channel 4 presenter Jon Snow has pleaded with viewers to stand up to government proposals to sell off the broadcaster, amid fears a sale would put the future of its award-winning news programme in jeopardy.

Snow used a revealing Ask Me Anything thread on Reddit to lambast Tory plans to privatise the state-owned channel to boost government coffers.

The presenter spoke out after the plans were exposed showing it was exploring the potential sale as part of an effort to divest assets such as the Royal Mail and Eurostar, public stakes in which were sold during the last parliament.


Snow explored his fearless career in journalism in the thread, revealing his most evasive interviewee, the most impressive, and his most difficult story.

He aired his views on politics.

And on the quality of British media.

He also spoke of his appreciation for BBC News.

Snow touched upon his groundbreaking series 'Drugs Live'.

There were some amusing questions too, with at least one reference to Snow's namesake in HBO epic 'Game Of Thrones'.

And he revealed the secret behind his eccentric style of tie.
