More about Jason

Jason hosts the morning show on BBC Radio Wales, taking your calls on the day's big topics from 9 AM Monday to Wednesday (Dot Davies takes the reins at 9 on Thursdays and Fridays).

For many years Jason was one of the presenters of Wales Today, Wales On Saturday, and the Scrum V Six Nations TV specials. As well as bringing you the latest news and taking your calls on his morning show, you'll also regularly see Jason presenting BBC One's Final Score on Saturdays, and chairing the 606 Phone-In on BBC Five Live shortly after.

Jason's been a regular on BBC Radio Wales for many years. Until September 2012 Jason held court on the midday Radio Wales Phone In, before taking up residence in the 9am slot he now occupies from Monday to Wednesday.

Cardiff born and bred, Jason studied Welsh and politics at Swansea University. He then returned to Cardiff for a postgraduate diploma in Broadcast Journalism at the capital's university.

Jason joined BBC Wales in 1997 and has been reporting and presenting ever since. He's worked in North Wales as a reporter for Wales Today, has filmed and presented a series of items from South Africa, and was a regular presenter on Wales Today for several years.

One of Jason's great interests is sport. For BBC Wales he's presented coverage from the Melbourne Commonwealth Games, the Ryder Cup and numerous FA cup finals, and he also presented the career-defining fight between Joe Calzaghe and Bernard Hopkins in Las Vegas, for BBC Wales and the main BBC network. Jason was trackside interviewing many of the world's biggest names in athletics during the London 2012 Olympic Games, pitchside for the football World Cup in Rio, and is also part of the regular BBC One presenting line-up for the rugby Six Nations.

On Radio Wales Jason built up a regular following as host of the Extra Time Phone-In, going on to be one of the captains in early series of the spin-off sports entertainment quiz Extra Time, along with Owen Money.

As a fluent Welsh speaker, Jason also makes regular appearances on BBC Radio Cymru.

Jason has presented Children in Need and has even made guest appearances on Doctor Who.

"So many people ask me about my roles in Doctor Who. I starred in 'The Christmas Invasion' and 'Voyage of the Damned', and of course, most ask if I met Kylie on the set of Voyage! Sadly not, but to have been asked to play the role of the newsreader in these BBC Wales productions was simply out of this world. I get fan mail from all over the world - the best one was from a guy in New Zealand who said he thought I played the role of a newsreader so well that he thought I was a real newscaster!"
