My career in radio began as a presenter over 35 years ago working in commercial and BBC local radio. From there I moved to be a “Player Manager” as PD and afternoon jock on the first wave of regional commercial stations at Century Radio.
The draw of National Radio was too strong and I left my “On Air” role behind and moved to London to be the PD of national station Talk Radio. Then onto LBC, and finally BBC Radio 2 for my tour of duty in London that lasted 3 years.
This gave me a unique qualification as one of the only UK based PD’s who had worked in Local and National, Commercial and BBC, with Music and Speech experience
The excitement of setting up a brand new Group of Stations for GMG came knocking in 2000. From a standing start to 14 stations across
the whole of the UK took up that decade, and after 13 years GMG sold out and I started Consulting again, which has been an incredible adventure that has taken me right around the world.
