In February, Snow revealed he was on the ‘lookout for more work’ after an ‘abrupt’ end to his journalism career a in 2021.
Speaking to Radio Times, he said: ‘Everything is tickety-boo, except there isn’t quite as much work as I’d like. I’m on the lookout for more.’
When speaking about enjoying a busy retirement, he said: ‘You can’t put your feet up anyway when you’ve got a two-year-old. They’ll be sitting on your feet before you can put them even halfway up.’
He continued: ‘It’s just that I want to keep the old brain going. And you can’t suddenly give up asking questions. You remain a journalist at heart, whether you’re employed as one or not.
‘I was at ITN and Channel 4 News for 43 years, and if you pound away for that long, doing the same thing, at the same time, every day, the moment it stops is quite abrupt.’
Jon added: ‘I’d always known there would be an endpoint, and it was probably the right time.’
