Who's On Air?
Monday - Friday, 2200 - 0100
On taking on the weekday Late Show, Vic Morgan has been presented with a challenge he's never faced before.
In a broadcasting career that began in 1984, Vic has never presented a late night programme.
Starting out as regular Swindon Town reporter on a local Wiltshire commercial station, his career has taken in jobs as diverse as commentating on Wembley finals to presenting rock shows from New York and Nashville.

The Late Show, though, is something Vic relishes.
"It means the chance to really get my teeth into creating something new," he says.
"Over the first few months I picked up a world exclusive with Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones, created a series on the 45th anniversary of the JFK assassination, and brought many radio stations around the world to the airwaves of the BBC in the South West.
"They want to be challenged and kept interested, even though they may be on the point of dropping off for a night's sleep.
"There are, of course many people on the roads or at work, so you can never assume they just want music".
Many basketball matches have brought great moments of excitement and challenges too, like trying to do a commentary on a mobile phone while trying to find a broadcast line that works.
