365 Radio // Bob Ballard

The Bob Ballard Club

Bob started in professional broadcasting in 1983.
He worked in the music industry after leaving school but his main ambition was to get into broadcasting.
He began doing Hospital Radio in Hillingdon from when he was just 16. But his big break came at BBC Radio Medway, which became Radio Kent soon afterwards, presenting their Saturday afternoon sport and music show ‘Out and About.’

After being on that programme and doing the station’s ‘Drivetime’ Show for about four years. Bob then went to BBC Radio York for a year and also worked at BBC GLR and the local radio sports unit in London.

The first aquatic sports event Ihe covered was the European Championships, in Sheffield, in 1993. Bob was working at BBC Radio Sheffield and was deployed to cover the competition.

He was immediately hooked on the sport and, as importantly, the people within it, which stoked his love of it and wanting to be around it long term.

Bob joined 365 Radio in September 2021 and brings a touch of class to proceedings on Monday Afternoons from 3pm – 5pm with his exclusive Bob Ballard’s Club.
