Russ Williams - Southern, Metro, Capital, Virgin presenter

Apr 09, 09:14 PM

This is the story of a man whose career grew from hospital radio roots to enjoy one of the longest commercial radio careers on national radio.

In this edition of #Radiomoments ‘Conversations’, Russ Williams tells of his debut on a new Southern Sound before being lured north to a booming Metro Radio. A call from Richard Park secured Russ’s appointment at Capital, before he transferred to the launch of the national AM station, Virgin 1215. After years on breakfast with ‘Russ n’ Jono’, an enviably long spell on mid-mornings began.

In this hour, Russ tells of his influences, life at the National Broadcasting School, his favourite programme directors and of what life was like during the frenetic Chris Evans spell at Virgin.

In his own words, this is the Russ Williams story.
