Where are they now - Phil Sayer

"I was at BBC North West for ten years, initially to present regional TV news when breakfast television began."

"Later I moved onto the regional bulletin that followed the 9 o’clock news on BBC1 when the powers-that-be handed the regions a generous two-minute slot."

"From the mid-80s, I also went back to my roots and presented a daily show on BBC GMR (now Radio Manchester) during the day, before returning to read the TV news each evening."

...and Phil Sayer (right) today.

"These days, most of my work is as a voice-over artist, though I still present live shows and conferences for corporate clients from time to time. It’s my voice on most of the automated PA systems on railway stations across the UK. As a result, I’m heard saying “Sorry…” quite a lot!"

"The company I run with my wife Elinor (Hamilton, which forms the buisness's name Sayer Hamilton) also provides PA announcements for large parts of the London Underground. We’re quietly proud that our two-person company from the North West of England beat off competition from the big boys in London to win this lucrative contract."

"Lastly, at the grand old age of 54 I’m the proud dad of two-year old twin boys. Silly old fool, eh?"
