I have over 2 decades of presenting both local and national radio programmes in a wide variety of formats – from chart hit stations like BRMB & Heart (where I was nominated for a Commercial Radio award in 2004) to the speech format I present now at talkSPORT & talkSPORT 2, a station group where;
- I remain the only presenter in the station's history to have worked in EVERY timeslot around the 24 hour clock,
- I built the best ever Sunday afternoon audience for the station with my ‘Football First’ show between 3-7pm
- I now provide commentary on talkSPORT 2’s Saturday afternoon Premier League games on 'Matchday Live 2' and midweek commentary games from the EFL & Champions League as well, plus further Premier League games on talkSPORT
PLANET ROCK is my other occasional on-air home these days - covering shifts for my pals Paul Anthony, Wyatt & Darren Redick as and when required.
Here's the view of my former boss at BRMB who helped launch my career in radio....
"Dants is an all rounder who is just as comfortable doing a music show as he is fronting football shows.
He is one of the most creative and talented people I’ve ever worked with. From his Barmy Brummies drivetime show (still in my top3 best radio shows) to his varied work on Talksport, Dants has a rare knack for knowing what the audience like. A class act, let down only by his inability to say anything good about Liverpool!!"
