My new afternoon show will see me team up with Fleet Street legend, critic Kevin O’Sullivan – two real-life chums who don’t agree on anything! Free of the restrictions imposed when I was on the goggle box, I’m looking forward to full-on phone-ins and laughs a plenty, not just with talkRADIO’s growing army of loyal listeners, but with an array of celebrity guests too. It will all kick-off at 1pm on Monday 10 September when I’m planning on not just discussing the news, but making it too.”

I’ve worked with Matthew previously and know from first hand experience the passion and commitment he brings to everything he works on. I know our audiences are going to love his new show.
