When John was in high school, he did a presentation in English class where his teacher told him that he talked too much. From that moment it was pretty clear a career where talking was essential was going to happen.
Priding himself on creating and crafting fun, relatable, exciting content, John has built up a reputation as one of the most hard working individuals in the industry. John’s career journey has seen him working on stations such as Xfm Manchester and the Galaxy Network where he worked alongside incredible talent and programmers who helped him hone his craft even further. Whilst at Galaxy, John went on to present at Pennine FM in Huddersfield where, under new management, took over weekend breakfast and then drivetime gaining fantastic Rajar results on both shows. After the stations closure, John moved to the Real network – at one point co-presenting Real XS (formerly Rock Radio) breakfast.
In 2010 John’s career took a turn back home towards Lancashire taking over 2BR’s weekend breakfast show where the show hit the highest RAJAR figures it ever had. After working on every show on 2BR, John jumped to their sister station The Bee to present the daytime show. Here, John took his creativity, humour and more to make the show commercial market leader. After a stint moving onto The Bee drivetime, John left the station for pastures new – Heat Radio.
Initially covering a number of shows on the schedule, John made his mark on the national digital stations daytime show as part of the new schedule. Starting the show with a Kisstory style feature called #Reheat, John got the chance to show off his music passion ability before getting back to the main show and getting to shine with creative radio and celebrity news. John achieved wonderful numbers on the daytime show and since then has moved to the Friday night Party Heat show.
Whilst at heat, John also began to present for the Bauer City Network stations in the north. John has presented shows on Rock FM in Preston and found a home with the Yorkshire stations – Radio Aire, Hallam FM and Viking FM where John has presented the regional network overnight show and also Radio Aire’s weekend shows – where he still is now having also filled in on daytimes and breakfast. Most recently John appeared on the Bauer City 1 network in England and Scotland – taking in stations such as Key 103, Metro, Radio City, Forth One, Clyde 1, Free Radio and more – regularly covering shows on the Bauer City network, mostly on overnights. John can also be heard across various stations in the Wireless group including Wire FM, Tower FM, Wish FM, Signal 1 and Radio Wave.
Along with this John has dipped his toes into speech broadcasting with the hometime show on Radio Yorkshire. Giving John the chance to expand his broadcasting skillset he secured exclusives with top sports stars such as Tyson Fury, Eddie Hearne, Liverpool FC vice-captain James Milner and wrestling legend Hulk Hogan.
Along with being on air, John is a published writer mostly writing about music, movies, video games and other forms of entertainment where John had the opportunity to interview some of the biggest names in Hollywood including; George Clooney, Keira Knightley, Jim Carrey and more.
