After working at the Olympic Games in 2012 I made a decision to build a portfolio in sports broadcasting with a plan to eventually move away from music radio.
With my wife falling pregnant at the end of 2012, personal priorities put my professional plans on hold. With my family in a more secure position, I began pursuing sports broadcasting opportunities at the end of 2014.
I began hosting ‘Game On’ for the Bauer City 2 network in January this year which was closely followed by a call from TalkSPORT. Since February I have been a regular on the national network leading to being asked to host Saturday morning ‘Extra Time’ every week since May.
At the end of June, Bauer Media asked if I would be interested in presenting a daily talk radio show revolving around sport to an audience in Liverpool.
“Talking football with one of the most passionate cities in the world?”
When do I start?!
This of course means I will no longer be hosting my weekly music radio show on Key 103 Manchester and brings to a close, for the foreseeable future, 10 years of music radio broadcasting for me. I am incredibly proud of all the things I have achieved in those 10 years but it is now time to head in a new direction for some exciting fresh challenges.
The newest of those challenges is City Talk Liverpool from Monday August 3rd and I honestly can’t wait. To now be broadcasting in my 3rd ‘big city’ that Bauer Media holds residence, is a huge honour.
I will continue to host my weekly show on TalkSPORT and more work with them is scheduled for the beginning of the new football season.
If you listened to my show on Key103 Manchester, thank you. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed making it.
