Presenter Profile: Neil Rudd

Neil Rudd
Neil Rudd is Radio Humberside's Renaissance man

Neil was born in Hull, at the old maternity hospital on Hedon Road , back in the glorious English summer of 1966.

He would like to think at the age of seven weeks he was shaking his baby rattle at the TV when England won the World Cup.

For many years Neil was a prison officer at Hull Prison whilst maintaining a radio career at a number commercial stations across Yorkshire.

Neil was given the chance to turn his part-time job into a full time career in 2003, when he began presenting a popular afternoon show on local oldies station. The show ran for four successful years before this 'local' programme was relocated to Newcastle.

Since 2007 Neil has been part of the team at BBC Radio Humberside: ''I always held a dream to work for the BBC and I felt like I had come home when I arrived here.''

During his time at the BBC, Neil has presented many of the daytime and weekend programmes and lending his voice and support to many of the station's sports' shows.

Neil has two teenage boys, who like Neil are sports mad, and a very young daughter who is now Neil's alarm clock for any early starts he has.

In his spare time you'll find Neil at Hull City games, supporting one of the local rugby league teams, playing cricket and golf - and of course spending time with his family.
