Why Colin thinks there's no better job than being part of the Look North breakfast team.

I originally came here to run the Radio Newcastle sports desk for a short while. Two children and nearly 15 years later I'm still here!

I started off in women's magazines (even writing the knitting pages) before settling into motoring journalism, PR and the odd bit of broadcasting.

That odd bit just grew and grew and I gave up a proper job to play rock and roll on the radio in Wales. It felt like running away to join the circus.

Since then I have enjoyed verbal sparring with politicians, reporting from all manner of places and situations and meeting some of my heroes. Brilliant.

Short of being a test driver for Ferrari, flying Spitfires and fronting Led Zeppelin I really cannot think of a better job. Even when the alarm goes at 4am every morning. Just reading that back I really do think it is time I grew up!
