Martin started his broadcast career at BBC Radio Cumbria and this is his second spell behind the microphone. In between times he "chanced his arm" elsewhere. In London at Radio 4 and elsewhere in the country for both commercial and BBC radio stations.
If not a broadcaster, what would you be?
Probably a computer engineer, or a warden with the Forestry Commission - "I just love trees."
Any little-known facts about you?
"I'm quite musical, I used to be a chorister at Carlisle Cathedral, but you wouldn't know it to hear me sing these days."
What do you do in your spare time?
What spare time?
Martin Plenderleith off duty
I'm married to Karen, my son Oliver runs a department in Harrods and my young daughter Megan…..runs ….rings round me!
As a freelance broadcaster I run my own company, so that keeps me off the streets for most of the time. I've usually of plenty of projects on-the-go and Karen complains she hardly sees me.
Martin sporting the casual look
Available for after dinner speaking, I'm 6'4" and in poor light, easily mistaken for Harrison Ford (despite photographic evidence to the contrary)!
