Charles Colvile

Charles Colvile started his broadcasting career at the age of 20 as a freelance sports reporter for Radio 4’s PM Programme. It was the original lucky break as he had only applied for a job as a clerk! However once launched upon the airwaves, there was no looking back.

After a short training spell at BBC Radio Oxford, Charles, still only 22, was recruited by Radio 4 and became their youngest ever staff announcer. Continuity Announcing and eventually Newsreading soon made him a familiar voice to the Nation’s radio listeners and when in 1980 he was loaned for a short spell to BBC1 and 2 Continuity, he had his first taste of the world of television which included a brief spell in-vision at Norwich.

In 1982 he returned to his broadcasting roots in sport as a member of the award-winning BBC Radio Sports Team and he soon carved out a niche for himself by becoming the first regular sports correspondent of the Today programme.
