The Sports Hour on Nerve Radio, 87.7 FM

As Sports Editor of Bournemouth University’s student station, Nerve Radio, during my final two years of my degree, I launched, co-produced and presented a new show – the Sports Hour.

Last year, it was part of a special two-week broadcast on local FM radio that was also available internationally at The show won ‘Best Talk Show’, among a wealth of competition, during the FM broadcast, and you can listen to both episodes I co-presented right here.

The Sports Hour’s FM Debut: March 14th, 2011.

Along with co-presenter Duggy, I launched the Sports Hour on to FM airwaves for the first time on March 14. The show included post-match reaction to AFC Bournemouth’s 3-1 defeat against local rivals Southampton, interviews with football commentators Dan O’Hagan and Clive Tyldesley, and an interview with former British Super middleweight Boxing Champion Cornelius Carr about his new Pheonix Mixed Martial Arts Gym in Winton.

The Sports Hour: March 21st, 2011.

This was mine and Duggy’s last show on the FM airwaves, and the action-packed hour included interviews with former Arsenal and Tottenham footballer Rohan Ricketts, ex Brentford manager Martin ‘Mad Dog’ on his new project ‘Pro FC’, more Six Nations reaction from Rugby correspondent Steve Johns and a second consecutive defeat for Bournemouth, this time after a 582-mile round trip to Carlisle. Four tickets for promotion-chasing Bournemouth’s crucial home clash against Tranmere Rovers were also up for grabs in a special competition.
