Born and raised in London, Sean Bolger began his radio career in 1983 as a Trainee Presenter at Brighton’s Southern Sound Radio. Working his way up the ladder to present a daily primetime show, he moved to Radio 210 in the Thames Valley in 1986 to host the PM Drive sequence, before leaving the UK in 1988 to join British Forces Broadcasting Service stations in Cyprus and Gibraltar.
Sean returned to the UK in 1989 to present a late-night show broadcast across the BFBS Network and in 1991 became producer and co-presenter of BFBS Worldwide, a ground-breaking daily magazine show broadcast live around the globe via satellite on BFBS, the BBC World Service and across the UK on BBC Radio 5. A year later Sean also joined the late-night team at London’s legendary talk stations LBC NewsTalk 97.3 and London Talkback Radio.
In 1993 Sean joined Channel 4 as a Presentation Announcer before returning to radio in 1995 to launch the Breakfast Show at Talk Radio UK. Remaining with the national station for almost four years, his phone-in on the morning of Princess Diana’s death earned Talk Radio a Gold Award at the 1998 New York Radio Festival.
Sean then moved on to present the PM Drive show at London’s Liberty Radio and quickly hit the headlines after conducting the world’s first live interview in over twenty years with pop legend Michael Jackson. In 1999 he also returned to London talk station LBC 1152 to present The Late Breakfast show, a lively blend of conversation, lifestyle and entertainment features.
Having then taken a break from radio due to increasing production & voice over commitments, Sean joined the presentation team at BBC Sussex & BBC Surrey in March 2013 and is thrilled to have rediscovered his radio roots once again.
