Ian Payne

Ian Payne
Ian Payne shares the Wimbledon presenting duties for Radio 5 Live with John Inverdale at this year's Championships.

He began his BBC career with Radio Lancashire in 1986, and was named as the Northwest Young Journalist of the Year in his first 12 months.

Ian joined BBC Radio network sport in 1988, and has since reported for and presented a wide range of programmes.

He has just finished a stint as the host of Saturday afternoon's Sport On 5, radio's most popular sports programme, and also presents Radio 5 Live's afternoon show.

A former Sony Sports Broadcaster of the Year, Ian always knew he was destined to work at Wimbledon.

As he recalls: "I remember working in a launderette and listening to Peter Jones, who used to do BBC Radio's Wimbledon coverage, and thinking 'That must be a great job'."
