"People’s understanding of business has changed enormously through both the good times and the bad over the last 20 years. The Business plays an important role in communicating with a very wide audience about the key issues, challenges and stories that shape our economy and working lives.”

Richard will present his first programme on Saturday April 26 at 10am.
