Vic's career in broadcasting began in 1984.

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.

"Over the first few months presenting the show, 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," he says. 

"The audience wants 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 too, so you can never assume they just want music.

"What is clear is that the Late Show audience is very loyal," he added.

Personal highlights over the 25 years in the industry include those aforementioned Wembley games for Swindon, Tiverton, Plymouth Argyle, and Exeter City.

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 worked.

"One real highlight, though, has to be a live and exclusive programme I presented from the 02 Arena, on the night Led Zeppelin reformed," said Vic.

"Mine was the only programme in the world that managed to accomplish that for a gig which received 20 million ticket applications. 

In 2009, Vic presented a show during the heavy snowfall, which won BBC Radio Devon a Gold Gillard Award.

"I love my job, I hope you enjoy the programme."
