Independent radio, an opportunity for all

I was 12 when I was invited to take part in a radio programme in a local radio station in the south of France. It was then that I discovered my passion for this medium, a passion that remains intact to this day. In 1981, I launched my career on a pirate radio station, l’Echo des Garrigues, then on Studio 101.

Professional beginnings, the start of the big networks

In 1985, I became a presenter on NRJ Sète, then NRJ Montpellier. That same year, I recorded my first voice-overs for advertising. At the same time, a group of friends and I set up a short-lived radio station, Radio Pâté. The initiative reached its peak in 1989 when, for a weekend, “RPM” Radio Pâté Montpellier broadcast sketches and comedy shows live on FM to cheer up patients in Montpellier hospitals. Several national radio presenters took part in the event.

On 2 October 1985, I was involved in the opening of the very first Fun Radio station, set up by three heads of six local NRJ franchise stations. When NRJ Montpellier reopened, Max Guazzini and Dominique Duforest recruited me to return to the airwaves. I presented Hit NRJ for five years. In 1989, I was entrusted with the on-air management of the Montpellier station.

All over France, by satellite

After a short break in the United States, at the end of 1991 I joined the RTL and Prisa groups to help launch M40, a new network of radio stations across France (which has since become RTL2). From 1995, I joined Gilles Verlant’s writing team, contributing to the writing of the television programme “Le Hit Machine” on M6, presented by Yves Noël and Ophélie Winter. Between 1994 and 1996, I made my return to NRJ, in Paris, on a national basis. From 1997 to 2001, I took part in the creation of the TV series “Roger”, broadcast on Fox Kids France. I was the writer and executive producer. The series was sold in ten countries around the world.

Ici, Londres!

In 2000, I left France to settle in England. Since then, I’ve lent my voice to numerous advertising campaigns (TV and Radio), films (ADR for films such as “Robin Hood”, “War Horse”, “The Last Duel”), video games (such as “Captain America”), audio books (Star Wars: Attack of the Clones) and documentaries, both in France and internationally.

From 2000 to 2008, with the help of an incredible team of volunteers and technicians, I recreated and chaired Radio Pâté, which was broadcast on the net all over the world.

In 2012, I had the honour of becoming the official Wembley Stadium announcer for the London Summer Olympics. That same year and until 2016, I also worked as the announcer at the Emirates Stadium, for Arsenal FC during their Champions League matches against French clubs.

Between 2014 and 2019, I lent my voice to the Iron Man action figure (Hasbro/Marvel). At the same time, since 2018, I have been producing columns for the BBC World Service, which are broadcast on BBC Africa, in particular for the programmes, hosted by Emmanuel Coste: “Sport Weekend” and “Chronique Foot”.

In 2024, I’m delighted to be sharing my interest in history through a series of podcasts highlighting the great « Discours & Plaidoiries » (« Speeches & Pleadings ») of personalities who left their mark on their era. The series is available on all major platforms.

My career, which is varied and rich in experience, continues to evolve, giving me the opportunity to stay connected to the world of communication, radio and voice-over throughout the world.
