Interview with Eve Pollard at the BBC regarding her views on Social Media
Garry Kousoulou from Loving Social Media interviews Eve Pollard.
Pollard’s career began at Honey magazine, where she eventually became fashion editor in 1967. She moved to the Daily Mirror the following year.
She was the second female editor, in modern times, of a national newspaper in the UK, editing the Sunday Mirror from 1987 to 1991 and the Sunday Express from 1991 to 1994 (Wendy Henry, former editor of the News of the World and the Sunday People, was the first).
In 1985, she was launch editor-in-chief of Elle magazine in the US and edited Sunday magazine for the News of the World and You magazine for the Mail on Sunday. She has also worked in television as features editor of TV-am (1982–1983) and devised Frocks on the Box, which ran for two 13-part series in the 1980s, for the ITV contractor TVS. She has often appeared on radio and TV and was a regular participant in Through the Keyhole. In 2003 Pollard was a guest panellist on the talk show Loose Women.
In 1992, she founded Women in Journalism. She was the first Chair and is still the Honorary President of the organisation, which advises members on networking, campaigning and training. In 2003, she became the Vice-Chairman of Wellbeing of Women, a charity dedicated to improving the health of women and babies in the UK. She still holds that post.
In 2016, she was appointed the first Chair of Reporters without Borders in the UK. In June 2019, she was awarded the prestigious Journalist Laureate prize by the London Press Club. She was given the accolade for being an inspirational editor and broadcaster.
