Bill worked with Esther Rantzen as a co-presenter on That’s Life in the 80s and is well known for his stint on the Holiday programme.

Radio Devon Editor Mark Grinnell: “Every time he has been on the radio we have had a great response from the audience. He is warm, friendly and accessible but can put challenging questions, just what we want from our presenters.”
