About John

After stints at radio stations in Leeds, John joined Ridings FM at our launch in 1999 working on our evening, afternoon and breakfast programmes before taking over our daytime show in 2016. Born just down the road in Dewsbury, John has been living and working in West Yorkshire all his life and after 19 years at Ridings FM feels like a native of the area and is proud to be part of the station that’s just for the Wakefield District.

John presents Ridings FM's Daytime Show from 10am-2pm and Saturdays 8am-12pm.
