Stories from Leo Hornak

BBC World Service producer, London

I'm The World’s BBC reporter and producer in London. I previously worked at BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme and BBC 2’s Newsnight.

I also make radio documentaries; my report on the US green card lottery was made into an hour long story for This American Life. 

I occasionally venture into print- in the past  The Sunday Times, the Independent and Timeout Mumbai have been kind enough to accept my scribblings.

My work has won prizes at the One World Media Awards and the New York Festivals.

I'm also a founder of In The Dark- a non-profit devoted to screening strange and wonderful pieces of radio in strange and wonderful venues.
