PEOPLE

  • Roy Basnett

    Presenter

    City Talk

    Roy was born in Widnes at some point in the 1960’s. Upon leaving school it was envisaged that Roy would, as his father and brother had done, enter the world of engineering. However it soon became apparent that he had as much chance of becoming an engineer as Vanessa Feltz had of becoming a successful daytime TV host! Eventually he found his way into DJ-ing. One day, a friend mentioned that a local radio station was looking for a front man to host their summer road shows; Roy attended an audition and was promptly given the job. After many years in the industry, he realised that ‘Talk Radio’ was where he wanted to be, and his desire to do more in this field of broadcasting has brought him to City Talk. Roy can be heard on- air in the early hours of the morning weekdays between 2-6am.
