Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic Tony worked in an executive role as Head of Music & Presentation at Fix Radio, the builder's station.  In his first year alone Tony increased listeners by 92% and furthermore listener engagement by 123% paving the way for the station to launch nationally in 2022.

It all began when Tony joined the line-up at the legendary Atlantic 252 in the late 90s. After many happy and successful months in Eire, Tony was summoned home to begin a grand tour of the UK’s best local and regional outlets including Chiltern, Beacon and Heart.

His impressive CV brought him to the attention of Richard Park, who invited Tony to join the team at Gold. 

Soon after Tony’s return to national radio, a radical decision was taken to make Breakfast the only hosted show.  Tony was the presenter chosen to be the voice of breakfast.
