At BRMB Radio in Birmingham he presented the daily mid-morning programme. He moved from radio to television when he joined ATV (later to become Central Television), working on programmes including Star Soccer, Something Different and several network documentaries. 

His professionalism has been widely recognised and among his awards is one for Lifetime Achievement presented at the BBC Nations and Regions Ruby Television Awards in 2006.
