What Illness Does Jeremy Paxman Have? Health Problems Explained

Jeremy Paxman is a broadcaster, author, and journalist who is recently sick, and his illness has been defined as Parkinson’s.

In 1989, he became a broadcaster on BBC Two’s Newsnight, where he interviewed a variety of political personalities. Paxman became noted for his direct and caustic interviewing style, especially when questioning politicians.

These appearances were criticized for being forceful, frightening, and condescending, but they were also praised for being harsh and insightful. After 25 years as its host, Paxman quit Newsnight in 2014. He has since done freelance work for Channel 4 News. He has been the host of University Challenge since its reintroduction in 1994.

In 1972, Paxman attended the BBC’s graduate trainee program. He began his career in local radio at BBC Radio Brighton. He relocated to Belfast and covered the Troubles. In 1977, he relocated to London. He moved from the Tonight show to Panorama two years later.
