Graeme Collyer

Graeme Collyer is HRR’s third-longest serving volunteer and has been sharing his famously bad jokes with our long-suffering listeners since 1991. Since 1995 he has been part of HRR’s football commentary team and now leads it, covering Reading FC’s home games with Andy Cook and club historian David Downs and sharing the unique match experience at the Madejski Stadium with the patients. Graeme also presents “The Weekend Today” on Sunday linchtimes, where he gives listeners the chance to catch up on all the national news of the past 7 or 14 days, bringing all the stories up to date from the reflective viewpoint of the weekend. When not at HRR Graeme is a Regional Sales Manager, covering Southern England for a gas fire manufacturer.  He also worked briefly as a freelance sports journalist alongside his regular day job and he is still a keen follower of football, cricket and tennis. A few years ago he took up cycling “in a bid to get fit, whilst enjoying the Berkshire countryside”. He also enjoys politics – “Nothing excites me more than a general election year. Some people will say I am a bit sad, but my favourite TV programme is Question Time”.
