About Alex Forsyth

As she takes over hosting duties on Any Questions?, Alex becomes only the 6th permanent presenter since the show began in 1948.Alex Forsyth

Alex started out in journalism in local newspapers before joining BBC local radio teams in Oxford and then Southampton before moving to network news. She grew up in Portsmouth and now lives in the West Midlands. Alex is thrilled to be hosting Any Questions? It’s a programme she has listened to and loved for many years, providing a vital opportunity for people to put their questions to elected leaders, which is more important than ever given the noise that can often surround the political debate of our times. She looks forward to attempting to get some answers

Any Questions? was first broadcast in October 1948, beginning as a fortnightly programme on the West of England Home Service and was originally intended to run for six editions only. It became a weekly programme in September 1949, broadcast live in the West Region on Friday evenings with a national repeat transmission on the Home Service up to six days later.

This pattern changed in September 1950 when the live Friday broadcast was switched to the BBC Light Programme (BBC Radio 2 from October 1967), although the discussion still came from venues in the West of England and the programme continued to be repeated later on the Home Service (BBC Radio 4 from October 1967).

On 10 April 1970, the Friday broadcast moved to Radio 4, which has broadcast both the live and the recorded editions of Any Questions? ever since.
