Joe Crowley is a current affairs, consumer and history presenter. He recently hosted the second series of Holiday Hit Squad for BBC One prime time and Police 5 on Channel 5.
Joe Crowley has been a reporter for the One Show on BBC1 for several years, reporting from across the country as well as appearing live in the studio and on location. When the need arises Joe covers as the main presenter on the sofa alongside Alex Jones.
Joe has recently presented Police 5 for Channel 5. The series featured public appeals to catch the perpetrators of crime whilst offering tips and awareness on crime prevention. Joe also accompanied the police on raids and talked to victims to learn how they fought back in their pursuit of justice.
Joe presented the second series of Holiday Hit Squad for BBC One in March, alongside Angela Rippon and Helen Skelton. The series followed Joe and the others as they investigated consumer issues, inspected hotels and gave advice to help holidaymakers get the most from their precious time abroad. Joe also presented series 1 of the show last year.
He was also on our screens last autumn as he returned for another series of Britain’s Empty Homes for BBC One.
Joe presented the six part series ‘Bloody Tales of Europe’ for National Geographic, which aired in March and April 2013. This followed on from the huge success of ‘Bloody Tales of the Tower’ a year earlier, which is currently being shown on Channel 5. He also put his history skills to good use presenting ‘Turn Back Time: The Family’ for BBC 1 primetime.
And over the past few years Joe has been a regular feature in the BBC Daytime schedule, presenting two series of Britain’s Empty Homes, Save My Holiday, Real Rescues and Britain’s Killer Roads, as well as narrating Animal Frontline for BBC1 Daytime and Helicopter Heroes Down Under for BBC2.
He also presented BBC1’s Country Tracks on a Sunday morning and could often be seen all over the UK taking on a wide array of challenges – from rock climbing, orienteering and cold water swimming to sea kayaking, wild camping and water skiing – while travelling through some of Britain’s finest countryside.
Joe has six series of the BBC 1 prime time current affairs programme Inside Out South to his name: presenting, reporting, producing, blogging and even self-shooting for the weekly BBC current affairs show.
Working on Inside Out South helped Joe develop into a versatile and experienced young journalist. From working undercover with secret cameras and door-stepping crooks to filming sensitive observational documentaries – while enjoying the surprising and quirky stories that life throws up – Joe has the compassion, energy, experience and humour needed for every situation.
And it’s some of Joe’s harder hitting investigations – confronting violent nighthawks, door stepping dishonest businessmen or even challenging inappropriate vicars – that saw him nominated as Young Journalist of the Year at the National RTS awards and earned him the Regional TV Personality of the Year gong at the RTS Southern Awards.
Joe also has plenty of experience in radio, regularly promoting and presenting his stories on BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC local radio as well as appearing as a contributor on Radio 4’s Today Programme. He has also reported live for BBC Breakfast, BBC World as well as appearing on BBC2’s Newsnight.
Joe has a history degree from Cambridge University and a post-graduate diploma in Broadcast Journalism from City University, London. He plays the piano and the violin; sings loudly; loves theatre; relishes the great outdoors; and enjoys travelling the world. A keen footballer, scuba diver, runner and fisherman, Joe is eager to take on any and every challenge!
