Steve Harris

Steve is with you every weekday evening on BBC Radio Solent between 1600 and 1900, with the latest news, sport, travel and weather for the South.

Steve is from South Wales - he is also half-Italian - but somehow a four year spell working on Teesside has left him a fan of Middlesbrough football club!

He first got into radio when he found himself at university studying for a masters degree in maths.

He realised that a career of talking in-between records and occasionally meeting famous people beat the hell out of becoming a maths teacher or a bank manager (the only two career paths open to people with maths degrees apparently!)

He loves music, a keen gig and festival-goer, and a bit of a runner - feel free to ask him about the one marathon he's finished and the other one he didn't quite finish!

Incidentally, Steve also once held a World Record for the longest radio show ever (he's in the Stop Press section of the 2000 Guinness Book of Records!)
