June is equally comfortable interviewing politicians, celebrities and members of the public and has interviewed and introduced some of the world’s biggest names including HRH Prince of Wales, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Bono, Tony Blair, George Clooney and 50 Cent.
Since 2010, she has built a reputation as a leading campaigner on a wide range of diversity and inclusion issues. She is a passionate advocate for change in the workplace and a champion for greater representation throughout the media.

She was awarded an MBE in 2007 for her services to broadcasting and charity, making her one of the youngest people ever to receive an MBE. She was recognised once again in the New Year Honours List 2020, receiving an OBE for services to broadcasting.
In October 2019, June became the first ever ‘Director of Creative Diversity’ at the BBC, where, as part of her role, she develops strategies to support both on-air and production talent representation and portrayal across the BBC, its platforms and its partners, to make the BBC more inclusive and representative of the broad and diverse audience it serves.
June also co-founded the Decide Act Now (DNA) summit which "brings together some of the most innovative minds in the world to generate ideas and initiatives that will effect lasting social change by working together to tackle some of humanity’s most pressing issues.”
