I’m back …

‘Never say never’ is what they say, but NEVER did I imagine that I would be writing this note in June 2016.

One thing I’ve learnt in my radio career is that opportunities present themselves at the most perculiar times, nothing is straight forward.

The opportunity I speak of, is a brand new talk show on Manchester’s Key103 which will air Monday – Thursday, 10pm – 1am.

If I could dream up a radio show to host this would be it. The North West is where Im from, so to be given this opportunity to initiate conversation with an audience I know and love is a real honour. We have the best football clubs, the best musicians, the best comedians, Iconic TV shows and people that are like no other. This show will celebrate every nook and cranny of who we are.

Ive spent the last 2 years learning the art of talk radio on a national platform with talkSPORT. I will continue to be a part of their team even though I relented on a more permenant position with the London based radio station earlier this year.

I love speaking to the whole nation but there’s something quite special in speaking specifically to my local people. It feels like I’m sat in my living room which I hope comes across with my new show.

I start on Monday, 4th July at 10pm. Everyone, and every opinion, is welcome.

Former Gatecrasher resident DJ Adam Catterall began his radio career in 2005 at Lancashire’s Rock FM. After a highly successful 18 months on 2 different time slots Adam was appointed the stations new breakfast presenter – a position which he kept for 3 and a half years. In this time he won several awards including an Arqiva for Commercial Radio Presenter of the Year and a nomination by the Radio Academy for Radio Personality of the Year in 2008.

In 2010 Adam decided not to renew his contract with Rock FM in order to chase his dream of presenting on BBC Radio 1. That dream was realised in April 2011 when Adam became a regular fixture on the network.

After a successful summer in 2012 presenting at the London Olympic Games Adam decided the time was right to pursue another dream presenting sport and accept the chance to cover Rock and Roll football on Absolute radio with Ian Wright.

Stepping back in to commercial radio caused interest from many radio stations but the offer from Key 103 Manchester was just to tempting to ignore. Adam re-signed for Bauer in January 2013 and after an incredibly successful individual Rajar year for him he quickly moved to their drive show.

TalkSPORT were soon to knock on the door and in February 2015 Adam began to present his weekly ‘Extra Time’ show. Bauer media also wanted to utilise his talent in sports broadcasting and offered the chance to leave Key103 Manchester for Radio City Talk Drive, a daily sports show for Liverpool.

His northern charm is highly engaging and very entertaining. His voice is synonymous with a range of well-known TV brands such as the infamous Foxy Bingo TV advertisement campaigns.

Adam also became the face of the National Lottery Scratchcard TV advertisment campaign in March 2012.

His previous voice work includes ITV2, ITV4, UKTV Home, SKY 1 and Sky 2.
