About Me

I’m an experienced BBC trained broadcaster, carrying out every comprehensive duty within the modern broadcasting age.

Although I was initially trained with just a microphone, I’ve embraced advances of social media, video blogs and podcasts whilst our audience rightly demand information and coverage on a minute-by-minute basis.

I commentate on football every week on BBC Radio but my skills are not restricted to football alone as I can demonstrate. My primary responsibility is to ensure the 90 minutes of live action find their way onto the airwaves and internet for a worldwide audience but the work which goes unnoticed is just as important.

Whether it be setting up and engineering equipment, confirming live guests from location or ensuring I Tweet interesting pictures form the event. Being first with stories on programmes, offering insight and behind the scenes access with a view to grow and entertain our audience are vital.

As well as commentating and reporting I host Sport and News programmes, front TV reports and file reports for the BBC Sport website, some of this exclusive content has had in excess of 100,000 hits.

In 2010 I was part of a three man Sport team which won the coveted BBC Gillard Gold award for a football documentary beating over 50 radio stations to scoop the top prize.

Examples of my work are available in the showreels  section although if you would like to experience a full commentary, package, TV report or entire programme then feel free to send me an e-mail – ian@ianstringer.co.uk
