Mexborough man takes to the mic

A MEXBOROUGH lad who was a guest presenter as a schoolboy at Hallam FM has returned to the station as a full-time show host.

Steve White, 30, presented his first show in 1992 at the tender age of ten after being invited to co-host the then breakfast show with Dave Kilner.

His opportunity came about after he wrote to the then Programme Director Steve King and asked to be a co-host of his After School Show.

Instead they let him loose on the morning show and the radio bug has stuck with him ever since.

Twenty years on, the former Dearne High School pupil has moved from BBC Radio Sheffield to fulfil his childhood dream and join Hallam FM as the new host of the drive time show.

He said: “It is so weird to be back in the very same Hallam FM studio that I visited as a kid and presenting on the radio station I grew up listening to.

“Excited doesn’t even cover it!”
