John Craven has a widely impressive media career, spanning over two decades. He can be remembered by many as the anchor of the BBC's Newsround but eventually swapped the comfort of the studio for the urban surroundings of the hit show, Countryfile.
In his career John has also focused largely on the adolescent and pre-teen area of television. As a result of this, he was awarded an OBE for his services to children's and rural broadcasting.
He is a fellow of the Linnean Society of London.
He was elected a member of the Royal Television Society in 1996, and awarded the RTS Baird Medal in 2002.
In November 2011, Craven attended the British Academy Children's Awards to collect a Special Award for Newsround in recognition of its contribution to television.
As well as all this John has also taken part in numerous other television shows such as Swap Shop, Castle in the Country, Craven's Collectibles and even the National Lottery Live. John can now be found in The Royal Television Society's Hall of Fame, which illustrates his level of work and excellence in the field.
