He is known for his direct interview style, and exclusive reporting from war-torn areas throughout Africa. Vine is also the host of the BBC shows Points of View, Panorama and the long-running quiz show Eggheads, taking over from Dermot Murnaghan full-time in 2014 before leaving in June 2018 to present a new Channel 5 chat show. In 2015 he was a contestant in the 13th series of Strictly Come Dancing.

It was revealed on 4 February 2015 that Vine received a five-figure sum for a post-dinner speech at a £250-a-head banquet organised by ADS Group, the trade organisation that represents defence and security industries in the UK, and attended by global arms manufacturers. Campaign Against Arms Trade lodged a formal complaint with the BBC, claiming a conflict for the organisation appearing to support an industry which “profits from dictatorships which silence and suppress debate”. This prompted a BBC response saying: “Jeremy is a freelance presenter and so can make personal appearances without speaking on behalf of the BBC, as he did here.” In January 2018 Vine was one of six male BBC presenters who voluntarily took a pay cut when the gap between men and women's pay at the BBC was revealed.
