Where are you from?
Nowhere really but I’ve lived most of my adult life in Yorkshire so that’s home!
How did you get started in broadcasting?
Started on a local paper in Hampshire 23 years ago and went downhill from there.
Why News broadcasting?
I know it sounds trite but I do news because I believe it’s important. Informed people make informed choices and that’s critical to democracy.
Where else would have viewers seen or heard you before?
I was on BBC local Radio before Look North and I’ve done a few stints for News 24.
What is your Best on-air moment?
Meeting Socrates (the footballer not the philosopher) was a high point.
What is your Worst on-air moment?
Mistakenly reading out in a radio bulletin A bum has exploded in North London. It should of course have been bomb.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
You’ll find me fishing, up a big hill or on my allotment.
A big thanks to Danny for taking part.
