Bono is to be a guest editor on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Today’ programme for one day between Christmas and the New Year. He is one of five celebrities to be given reign of the prestigious show this year. The Duchess of York, director Anthony Minghella, Sir Richard Branson and Baroness Onora O’Neill will be covering the rest of the week.
Last year, Thom York, Monica Ali and Stephen Hawking were the first stars to be put in charge of ‘Today’.
Bono will be working with the regular Today team to ensure the material is ‘newsworthy’ and stays ‘within BBC producers’ guidelines’. But if he needs a sub, several members of the u2log.com editing team are willing, capable and ready to test the limits of Auntie’s standards.
