Jason Roberts MBE is a former Premier League and international striker.

Jason started his career at Hayes football club, following in the footsteps of his uncle, Cyrille Regis. He signed for Wolverhampton Wanderers and went on to play at Torquay United, Bristol Rovers and West Bromwich Albion where he was bought for a club record signing fee of £2 million. He later played for Wigan Athletic and Blackburn Rovers before joining Reading in January 2012. Jason since has announced his retirement from professional football.

Jason has made a big impact in the media. He joined the BBC Radio 5live 606 team in the summer of 2011 and presented a fortnightly feature on the show’s website. He is now a regular on the BBC’s Match of the Day 2, Football Focus and Final Score. He has appeared on Sky Sports and BT Sport and also presented BBC World Have Your Say. He also regularly works for Premier League TV and has a weekly Premier League show on Flow Sports in the Caribbean.

His first documentary, ‘Jason Roberts meets Fabrice Muamba’ was broadcast on the BBC in November 2012. The documentary saw Jason get the first interview with ex-Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba to talk about the moment he collapsed on the pitch, his recovery and how his life had been altered by the incident.

In 2016, alongside his co-host Damien, he launched their radio show ‘The Dugout’ – you can join them every Thursday from 5pm in the Caribbean, that’s 9pm in the UK, on The Soul Of Grenada Radio 100.7 FM.

In 2007, he founded the Jason Roberts Foundation, a charity that provides educational and sporting opportunities for children and young people in the UK and Grenada.

Jason also founded clothing brand Chess London.
