Andrew presents the BBC WM Breakfast Show every Sunday from 7-10am with the weekend's big news stories in the West Midlands and debate about the week's big issues.

Born in Bloxwich, Andrew got his first taste of radio when he won a competition on the Ed Doolan Show in 1989.

His prize was to spend a few days away from Queen Mary's School in Walsall, travelling to Cologne to compile radio reports about life in Germany for a programme Ed presented from the city. He loved it so much, the course of his career was set.

Age 16, he was given a weekly show later that year and he continued working for the BBC when he moved south to study at Oxford University.

Andrew has won a number of accolades in the radio industry including being named BBC Local Radio Presenter of the Year in 2005 and being recognised in the Sony Radio Awards for best phone-in, best news coverage, best outside broadcast and best interview.

He loves to travel in the United States and covered the 2004 US Election for BBC News from Washington DC. As well as his BBC WM show, you can also hear him on BBC Radio 2 with presenters such as Jonathan Ross and Chris Evans.

Andrew is a lifelong Villa supporter, even though the rest of his family are ardent Baggies fans. He loves playing the piano, swimming and walking in the countryside although most of his time these days is taken up by his young children, Isaac and Martha.

He prides himself on being a presenter who listeners feel comfortable confiding in, so there are plenty of human stories in his show as well as discussion and banter on the phones.
