Peter Lewis News


Peter Lewis is a former British television continuity announcer.

He started announcing at Television Wales and West (TWW) during the mid to late sixties. Before his career had begun, Peter's family were already well known in Wales and the West of England. His father, Bruce Lewis, had already been a hugely popular presenter for TWW and his brother, Martyn Lewis would later become a journalist and newsreader for ITN and the BBC. He is also the uncle of folk musician Sylvie Lewis.

Lewis joined London Weekend Television during its opening month in August 1968 and around the same time, freelanced for Yorkshire Television. Later, he chose to concentrate on his work for LWT and became the first person to broadcast from the company's then-new headquarters on the South Bank of the river Thames in 1971.
