"A... talent of the first order"
- Antonia Quirke, New Statesman
I am a presenter for BBC Sports News, having worked in the broadcast industry for more than 20 years. My experience on television and radio includes more than a decade with BBC radio and television: I appear on BBC One, BBC Breakfast and the BBC News Channel, while since 2011 I've also presented on Radio 5 Live, the World Service, and the Radio 2 Breakfast Show with both Zoe Ball and previously Chris Evans.
I've been based in Manchester since moving here to cover the 2002 Commonwealth Games, and while working for commercial radio in the city I commentated on than 400 Manchester United and Manchester City games, which featured three Champions League finals, four FA Cup finals, and four League Cup finals; I've also reported on ten Premier League triumphs, most recently City’s victory in 2021 which ended an 11-year spell of hosting the club’s match day television show, broadcast live at the ground. As well as countless high profile players, I've interviewed every City manager from Kevin Keegan to Pep Guardiola, and during my time with Manchester radio station Key 103 spoke to Sir Alex Ferguson one on one every week.
From 2016 until 2022 I wrote, produced, and hosted the Set Piece Menu Football Podcast with Andy Hinchcliffe, Rory Smith and Steven Wyeth, which was downloaded on a weekly basis by thousands of subscribers and has reached as high as number two in the iTunes charts.
At the London Olympic and Paralympic Games I presented during each day at the sold out Velodrome, and also to an 80,000-strong crowd at the Olympic Stadium; and my cricket work has included presenting at all England internationals for the ECB, for the ICC at the Champions Trophy, and T20 matches at Lancashire County Cricket Club for both a stadium and online audience.
