During the winter months, I present The Sports Zone every Saturday afternoon, 3-6pm - a mix of local and national sport updates and easy listening music.We focus our coverage on sports clubs around the town including coverage of Tamworth FC, Tamworth Rugby Club, Tamworth Hockey Club, Tamworth Cricket Club, Tamworth Phoenix American football and the Tamworth Spartans Volleyball club.
From May through to the end of August between 1-4pm it's Saturday Live! We broadcast live from events across the area such as The Polesworth Carnival, We Love Tamworth and The Canwell Show.
I caught the radio bug as a teenager and it has stayed with me for many years, working at radio stations right across the country as a news and sports journalist. I helped launch Centre FM radio here in Tamworth in 1998 and came back for a second spell in 2005 when the station re-branded.
I now do media relations/PR but really enjoy being back on the radio with TCR fm, which is a fantastic community radio station, with some great people, which the town should be very proud of.
I'm a social media geek and can be found engrossed in Twitter and Facebook for long periods. You can follow me on Twitter @Mikeacthomas
Mike doesn't have a regular show slot at the moment, but keep an eye on the schedule for him popping up very soon!
