Nick Owen – 30 years in television

1982 was a year of new beginnings. For the Tettenhall Club it was the year that we received our Rotary Charter whilst for Nick Owen it was the start of a new chapter in his television career as he joined the fledging commercial breakfast station TV-AM.

As we are both celebrating 30 years in business it was appropriate then that Nick should join us tonight as the speaker at our anniversary dinner.

With a career which has taken him from the birth of breakfast television in the UK, to presenting flagship sports programmes and with his colleague Anne Diamond to forming part of one of the most famous double acts on television Nick entertained us with a wealth of anecdotes.

Originally from Birkhamsted but schooled in Shrewsbury Nick has now made the Midlands his home and he is passionate about promoting the development of the region – though notably this does not extend to his choice of football team as he remains loyal to the team of which he is now Chairman, Luton Town.

With such a polished performance its easy to see why Nick was named Speaker of the Year by the Association of Speakers Clubs and we are grateful to him for helping to make our 30th Anniversary Dinner such a memorable event.
