Ian Hislop

editor private eye

Ian Hislop is the editor of the UK's number one bestselling news and current affairs magazine, Private Eye. With a readership of over 700,000, the paper broadcasts to a wide readership. The son of a civil engineer, Hislop’s family travelled extensively during his childhood, before he came back to school in the UK. Hislop says that his childhood ended at the age of twelve, following the death of his father. This made him increasingly independent. He joined Private Eye at the age of 21 and became editor only five years later; he has remained in that position for the last 28 years. Through Private Eye, Hislop is devoted to exposing corruption through investigative yet humorous journalism.
