“If I could dream up a radio show to host this would be it. The North West is where I’m from, so to be given this opportunity to initiate conversation with an audience I know and love is a real honour,” he said.

“We have the best football clubs, the best musicians, the best comedians, Iconic TV shows and people that are like no other.  This show will celebrate every nook and cranny of who we are!”

Catterall left the station in 2015 as he pursued a career in sports broadcasting. That included hosting Extra Time at TalkSPORT and presenting a sports-orientated show on Bauer’s City Talk.

“Adam is well known to the Key 103 audience and after honing his skills on Radio City Talk’s Home Run he brings his infectious enthusiasm, energy and creativity to late nights in Manchester,” added Owen Ryan, group content director Bauer City Network.
