Mike Day

Mike Day has been one of the mainstays of our Saturday Sport programme since joining HRR in 2008 but already had a long and varied broadcasting career behind him. He started out at Scunthorpe Hospital Radio in the late 70s /early 80s where he presented a variety of shows and was also Publicity Officer. Between his two bouts of voluntary service with hospital stations he was lucky enough to work in BBC Local Radio presentation throughout most of the 1980s and 1990s, and did some work for the BBC World Service and Regional News too. At BBC Radio Humberside, he presented a range of programmes including the Saturday and Sunday Breakfast shows, weekday drivetime and weeknight sport as well as film reviews for most of the 1980s.  He was also “the voice” on many promotional trailers. Mike used to teach Media Studies in Further Education and now works in customer services as a learning advisor as well as being a keen student himself with Open University qualifications in Government & Politics, History and Sociology.
