North East Drivetime Presenter required.

Are you a charismatic and dynamic individual with a passion for radio broadcasting? Do you have an engaging personality and a knack for keeping listeners entertained during their afternoon commute? Are you based in the North East of England or have strong affiliations with the region? If you answered 'yes,' this opportunity is tailor-made for you!

We are seeking a unique Drive Time Presenter to captivate our audience during their journey home in the North East.

Three new radio stations, The Toon (Newcastle and Tyneside), The Cat (Sunderland and Wearside) and The Red (Middlesbrough and Teesside) have launched this year on DAB, Online and on Smart Speakers and we are looking for talented presenters, with a passion for the area and their team to join us.

Who we're looking for:

Local Talent: Are you a born-and-bred Geordie, Mackem or Smoggy or do you have strong affiliations with the North East? We want presenters who truly  understand the heartbeat of the region and its deep connection to their teams.

Football Fanatics: Though we ARE NOT footy radio stations, footy does course through the veins of North East life, so your passion for your team should be unmatched! We need presenters who can bring the game to life through their expert analysis, entertaining discussions, and infectious enthusiasm and banter.

Charismatic Personalities: As a presenter, you'll be the voice of our stations. We want individuals with charisma, charm, and a natural ability to engage listeners.  Bring your unique flair and make a lasting impression!

Emerging Talent: We are particularly keen to unearth the next big North East thing - we love helping budding presenters blossom - could it be you ?

Though we are three separate radio stations, we will be networking all three at key times to allow for true North East debate and banter to over 2 million adults by the end of 2024. You could be central to it.


Host your own Drivetime show dedicated to the North East and your team, featuring match reviews, player interviews, fan debates, and the latest news coming out of the clubs.

Engage with our loyal listeners through phone-ins, social media interactions, and community events. Connect with the passionate fan base and keep the conversation alive.

Collaborate with our production team to create exciting and engaging content, ensuring each show is entertaining, informative, and tailored to the interests of our audience.


Unparalleled Exposure: As part of the North East’s premier local stations, you’ll have a platform to showcase your talent and expertise to a dedicated fan base.  Your voice will resonate throughout the North East!

Networking Opportunities: Forge connections with local celebrities, football legends,  and fellow presenters. Open doors to potential future opportunities in the industry.

How to Apply:

We have huge plans for these stations, and more. If you're ready to take the airwaves by storm and become the voice of North East life, please send an email and apply in confidence to Dave Roberts, Managing Director, RedArmy Group:

Include a brief introduction about yourself, your love for the team, any relevant experience, and why you believe you'd be the perfect addition to our team. A link to a recent show or demo would be VERY useful too!

Please note that due to the high volume of applications, only successful candidates will be contacted for further discussions.

Join us at the region’s newest radio group and let your passion for the North East, and the magic of radio shine through… and have fun doing it!
