David Frost: English television host, media personality, journalist, comedian, and writer
Sir David Paradine Frost was an English television host, media personality, journalist, comedian, and writer. He rose to prominence during the satire boom in the United Kingdom when he was chosen to host the satirical programme That Was the Week That Was in 1962, and his success on this show led to work as a host on American television. He became known for his television interviews with senior political figures, among them the Nixon interviews with President Richard Nixon in 1977 which were adapted into a stage play and film. Frost interviewed all eight British prime ministers serving between 1964 and 2016, and all seven American presidents in office between 1969 and 2008.
