Meet Malcolm Boyden...

Malcolm Boyden is a double Sony award winning radio presenter.
He won a gold medal in 1997 when he was voted “Radio Personality Of The Year” and followed that up in 2001 when he took a bronze award in the “Broadcaster Of The Year” category.
Malcolm began his career as a newspaper journalist on the Redditch Indicator, where, in 1985, he won the “Heart of England Sports Journalist Award.” He later went on to work as a sports sub-editor on the Daily Star and then sports editor of the Birmingham Daily News. He is also a former sports columnist for The Times, and Birmingham Mail.
His debut novel, Perfect, was published by House of Stratus in 2003. Brum’s The Word, a book made up of his football columns in The Times, came out the same year. Malcolm’s third book, Ferrets, Faggots and Elvis, focussing on the eccentric folk of the West Midlands, was published in 2005. His highly acclaimed manual, The Greatest Podcasting Tips in the World appeared in August 2007. 
Malcolm is also no stranger to the stage. He made his pantomime debut in 1997 when he played alongside Frank Bruno and Karl Howman in Goldilocks and the Three Bears at Birmingham’s Hippodrome Theatre. He became the first artist ever to be invited back to the Hippodrome the following year, when he appeared with Brian Conley and Danny La Rue in Cinderella. He became a pantomime dame, in 2000, when he took on the role of Mother Goose at Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre. In 2002, he teamed up again with Frank Bruno as Gertie the “Queen of the Circus” in Goldilocks at the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre. In 2003-04 he returned to the Birmingham Hippodrome when he appeared with Julian Clary in Cinderella. In 2006, he appeared in Jack and the Beanstalk at the Lichfield Garrick Theatre. He returned to the Garrick to star in Cinderella, a show that broke all box office records and, in 2008 / 09 he was in Lichfield again with Dick Whittington.
Malcolm has also appeared with the Birmingham Royal Ballet. He performed the role of the Magician’s Assistant in David Bintley’s The Cracked Nut.
He made his musical debut in the summer of 2000 when he took on the role of Stoker the butler in the world premier of Balfour. In 2002, he played Lenny Cox in Wallop Mrs Cox at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, a role he recreated “by popular demand” at The Rep in February 2003. He has also taken the leading role in Ridin’ The No 8 at the Birmingham Rep – a musical about a Midlands bus route!
Born and bred in Bromsgrove, Malcolm is a fanatical West Bromwich Albion fan, alongside his two sons Elliott and Oliver.
