His career as a television presenter has seen just as much success whilst running parallel to his music career. Among the highlights are his much-loved shows Later...With Jools Holland and his annual show Hootenanny, which is broadcast on New Year's Eve.

In 2003 his achievements were formally recognised when he was awarded an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours list, later having the privilege of being included in the line-up for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert in 2012.

Some of his other achievements include performing at the New Year's Eve Millennium Dome opening ceremony in 1999; collaborating with Tom Jones on an album in 2004 which entered the UK Album Charts at No.5; winning the Sony Radio Academy Silver Award for Best Specialist Music Programme in 2010 for his highly-acclaimed and eclectic BBC Radio 2 show; and winning the Sony Gold award for Music Broadcaster Of The Year in 2010.
