What TANNER Creative offers


Sports Presentation and live reporting including commentary. Media Training and Event hosting. Network Reporting for BBC  and Talksport. Currently lecturing at University of Huddersfield and Leeds Beckett University.


I live in Yorkshire and am married with three children.

Broadcasting in one shape or other has been my life since I first began in Hospital Radio and then University Radio.

I like almost all sports and for a number of years have been helped coach my local village football team. I am a level 1 FA football coach.


I worked for the BBC from 1983 until 2012. In that time I ran radio stations as well as presented, produced and reported on current affairs shows. In 1994 I switched to sports broadcasting, commentating on and producing many major set piece outside broadcasts

In 2012 I set up my own company Tanner Creative Ltd and since then have worked for not only the BBC but also Talksport, Signal 2 and, up until they closed it down, Sky Sports News Radio. In 2014 I went back to TV presentation working for Made in Leeds for a year.


I lecture on sports journalism, multi-platform news room and radio broadcasting plus voice coaching at  Leeds Beckett University  and the University of Huddersfield.

I regularly host end of season football awards, annual sports awards and a prestigious charity awards event in Bradford.
