Presenter Profile: Carl Wheatley

Carl Wheatley
Saturday presenter Carl Wheatley

Carl has worked in broadcasting for nearly 15 years. He originally trained in professional theatre in London and managed to squeeze a university degree out of the experience.

His radio career has taken him to BBC Radio York, BBC Radio Leeds and BBC Radio Humberside. He has experience of commercial radio in Oxford. But, all that riding around on bicycles was wearing out his tiny legs. He didn't need to be asked twice to return to his native Yorkshire.

During his career, Carl has worked behind a bar, performed as a stage hypnotist, taken on the role of stage manager and a radio presenter. In his time at BBC Radio Humberside Carl has presented every show in every programme slot at least once.

Carls loves gadgets, pantomime and his gorgeous family and was so pleased to welcome Harry as the latest addition to the family. He also enjoys taking part in pub quizzes, the work of Victoria Wood and strong coffee.

One day Carl will give it all up and run a guest house in Cheadle. Probably.
