Radio Broadcasting

 

I am a scriptwriter, producer and broadcaster of news bulletins for the Wireless Group within News UK, covering Times Radio, talkRADIO, talkSPORT and Virgin Radio.

Times Radio - a joint venture between the Times, the Sunday Times and Wireless Group - was launched on June 29, 2020 as a national digital news radio station broadcasting on DAB, online and via app and smart speakers.

I also host 'The Best of Times Radio' between 1am and 5am.

I have been involved with Times Radio since its launch and my role allows me the chance to demonstrate my wider understanding of the political issues in sport.

In September 2021, I joined Calum Macdonald on the station's 'Early Breakfast' programme to highlight why the story of Champions League debutants Sheriff Tiraspol beating Real Madrid was not the purest footballing fairytale.

The Head of talkSPORT Lee Clayton said the station's responsibilities to its listeners during the pandemic were to “continue to inform and entertain, but also to give them some escape”.

Covering sport without sport, the station - named network of the year at the Sports Journalism Awards in 2020 - had to adapt quickly as it continued to broadcast around the clock.

One of my roles was reporting for the Sunday Exclusive with Mark Saggers.

I provided the hourly news bulletins for The Graham Norton Radio Show, as the man himself made his Virgin Radio UK debut on the weekend of 9-10 January,  2021.
