"Really lovely, funny and polished"
Campaign Media Awards
The Match of the Day 2 presenter began as a newspaper reporter, cutting his teeth at the Ulster NewsLetter. He then published his own cutting-edge music magazine Blank, and unexpectedly found himself co-hosting BBC Radio 1's Session In Northern Ireland.
After that Colin moved through the ranks at Radio 1, deputising on various shows and doing a stint as host of the flagship evening music programme. He also partnered Edith Bowman and chaired 5 Live's sports quiz Fighting Talk, marshalling the egos of the competing experts.
Away from the Sunday football highlights, Colin fronted live broadcasts from the World Cup in South Africa. Other presenting credits include Stars in Fast Cars, Channel 4's Born Sloppy and BBC 3's coverage of Glastonbury. He has also received a coveted Sony Award and published his first book, A Random History of Football.
