Journalistic Roots/b>
Born in Swansea, Ian Hislop had an adventurous start to life due to the work of his civil engineer father. The family lived in an array of places including Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria before returning to the country for Ian to be educated at Ardingly College. From here Ian Hislop went on to study at Oxford University where he built upon his satirical and journalism experience relaunching the magazine ‘Passing Wind’. This was the foundation of his future career which was kicked into full gear when he revived the publication and interviewed Private Eye editor Peter Cook. After University, he went straight into work at Private Eye and would later take over as editor when Richard Ingrams left in 1986. He has continued on as editor ever since and the publication still thrives, with Hislop even winning an award for Print Journalist of the Year 2017, from the London Press Club.
