Glen Thompsett

Glen has worked in the broadcast media for almost twenty-nine years.

He started his career in local radio as an engineer before realising his real passion lie in front of the microphone, so the programme controller of Severn Sound in Gloucestershire gave him the weekly rock show that was back in 1980!

Since he was ‘let loose’ on the air, he’s never looked back and has worked on radio stations in Birmingham, Coventry and was the breakfast presenter at Invicta FM in Kent gaining the station some of its highest ever listening figures during the 1990’s.

His television journey began as a Continuity Announcer for TVS (the forerunner to ITV1 Meridian) in the South of England. From there he moved to London Weekend Television as ‘the voice of London’. Other work has included Sky News, numerous corporate productions and he currently works as a regular reporter and presenter for Meridian ITV1.

He’s been a regular face with Markettiers 4DC as a ‘Webchat’ presenter and has lectured in broadcast radio journalism at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, Surrey. In his spare time (when he gets any) he enjoys Golf, Cycling and Travel.
