Colin Murray is a three time Sony Gold winning radio broadcaster, television presenter and writer.

Colin worked for talkSPORT from 2013-2016, hosting their weekly mid-morning show. He also presented the live NFL games and Super Bowl coverage for Channel 4.

In 2014 he presented a six-part series on BBC Radio 6 Music which took listeners on an audio journey through a soundscape of music, film, history and comedy. He also reunited with his Radio One co-host Edith Bowman to present Radio 5 Live’s ‘Bump Club’, following women through their pregnancy, offering tips and guidance whilst tying in with the birth of the new Royal baby.

Colin hosted BBC’s BDO World Darts Championships, from the legendary Lakeside Country Club, and he was also the anchor of the BBC’s Match of the Day 2.

He co-produced, wrote and presented 5 Live’s landmark Olympic series Colin Murray’s Gold Run, in which he aimed to track down every single living British summer Olympic Gold Medallist. The Radio 5 Live Olympics team won a Sony Gold Award for Best Sports Programme.

He achieved a lifelong ambition by becoming a published author, writing A Random History of Football for Orion Publishing, which has been reprinted since. He also writes a weekly column for the Metro newspaper.

His dream is to one day host Countdown and he has been lucky enough to be in dictionary corner numerous times.
