Glen Thompsett

Glen has been working in broadcasting for more than thirty years. He started his career in local radio as an engineer before realising his real passion was 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-air’ he’s never looked back. Glen has worked on radio stations in Gloucester, Birmingham, Coventry, and Wiltshire and was one of the original team that launched Invicta Radio in Kent in 1984. He presented Invicta’s breakfast show achieving some of stations highest listening figures during the late 80’s and early 90’s.

Glen’s 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 one of the regular ‘voices of London’ until the demise of regional ITV in 2002.

Other work has included Sky News, a host on the shopping channel QVC, numerous corporate productions and has worked as a reporter/presenter for Meridian ITV1. Glen spent ten years as a part-lecturer in broadcast journalism in Surrey and also runs his own small independent production company.
He currently works as a freelance newsreader for LBC, Classic FM and Smooth Radio and the BBC.

Glen sees Connections Radio as a ‘real alternative’ and thinks the idea of listening to interviews from business leaders will be inspirational, thought provoking and entertaining.
