Cole has also covered many of the major news stories of our time: from 9/11 to the London Olympics and the death of Nelson Mandela. He was executive editor of The Independent on Sunday and chief feature writer of The Sunday Telegraph, where he pioneered new forms of multi-media storytelling. Now working as a freelance, his features and analysis have appeared in The Financial Times, The Guardian and The Sunday Times, among others.
An experienced broadcaster, Cole Moreton has presented Sunday for Radio 4 and his new series The Boy Who Gave His Heart Away will be heard on the same station this summer. Other radio and television appearances include The Moral Maze and The Big Questions.
The first of his three books Hungry for Home about Ireland and America was shortlisted for the prestigious John Llewellyn Rhys Prize. His latest Is God Still An Englishman? explores the huge recent changes in British spirituality, culture and national identity and speaks up for the millions of us who believe but don’t belong.
Cole is a visiting lecturer at the University of Westminster and has led courses for the Arvon Foundation. He is available as a consultant to help individuals and companies understand and communicate their own stories.
