Jordan Jarrett-Bryan will be joining The Publishing Show 2023 as a speaker and moderator!
Jordan is Sports Correspondent for Channel 4 News and has a weekly show on the biggest Sports Radio station in the world, talkSPORT. He was a reporter and presenter for Channel 4’s award-winning coverage of the 2012, 2016 and 2021 Paralympic Games, reporting on most sports including Wheelchair Basketball.
Jordan played Wheelchair Basketball for 20 years, captaining the GB Junior side during two European Championships and World Championships in 2006. He played professionally for 5 years in the Italian league, winning a championship in the process. He was born without a fibula and tibula in his right leg. Jordan loves to speak about his disability, how it’s affected him and how others can use theirs as a positive rather than seeing it as a negative.
But it’s his work as a reporter and editor that he’s best known for. After a successful period as editor of Live Magazine, ATM magazine and a stint as a radio DJ with the BBC, Jordan got the chance to fulfil his ambition of becoming a sports reporter when he was recruited to be one of the faces of Channel 4’s 2012 Paralympic Games.
Jordan has interviewed some of the biggest athletes in the world including; Anthony Joshua, Jose Mourinho, Jessica Ennis Hill, Gary Lineker, Usain Bolt.
In 2018, Jordan started up a YouTube channel Blakademik, aimed to elevate and celebrate Black culture. The platform has a variety of shows ranging from relationship programmes to debate shows to knowledge sharing. Some of the most respected voices in the country have featured on the show including Afua Hirsch, Dane Baptise, Jamelia, Troy Deeney and Ade Adepitan.
Youth culture is something he is very passionate about especially issues around employment and education. Jordan is proud to be an ambassador for the charity Whizz Kidz, where he works with disabled children, offering advice and guidance to help them reach their potential. He is also an ambassador for charities, Mintridge Foundation and Path to Success.
Jordan is extremely passionate about issues regarding disabilities, Black youth, Sport and Black culture as well as hosting events both corporate and commercial.
