Despite his age, Graeme’s been in the radio industry for over 15 years now after starting on the air as a 16 year old on the blag  at Juice FM in Liverpool. From here he made his way to the Galaxy Network where he hosted the market-leading drive show from Leeds for about four years starting at the age of 19 and then leaving for Xfm London aged 23 to host shows in London and across the network. He moved onto the original Virgin Radio UK at 25 and then Absolute Radio. 

 

He also had a brief spell hosting shows and making contributions to UK news-talk station LBC as well as some reporting and producing for mens hour on BBC Five Live.
