Adam Catterall: Career
Just at age of 24, a nearby radio station ‘Rock FM’ hired Catterall as their nightly host, launching his radio career. Adam moved swiftly through their schedule, and in November 2006 he was named the host of the breakfast show. The first of many professional honors came when Adam was crowned the UK’s commercial radio broadcaster of the year in 2007. After electing not to extend his agreement with the radio station, Adam left Rock FM & radio hosting in general in May 2010. Before the summer of 2012, when Adam Catterall started working in sports as a presenter at the ‘London 2012 Olympic Games’, he was a regular on BBC Radio 1.
Adam Catterall hosted his debut show there in April 2011. Adam has been a regular contributor to Talksport since 2014, and he has subsequently spearheaded their coverage of the UFC and boxing. Adam and Nick Peet, the previous editor of ‘Fighters Only’ magazine, started a podcast in March 2016. In order to engage fight fans, Fight Disciples tried to speak to them as though they were hearing from their knowledgeable friends at a bar. Fight Disciples took home the “Best Sports Program” prize at the ‘British Podcast Awards’ in April 2017. They achieved a milestone that not a single podcast in a different category had accomplished before or subsequently when they took home the very same award in 2018. They defeated national radio presenters from Sky Sports & BBC Radio 5 Live to win the Radio Academy Award for “Best Sports Show” in 2018. Several other business prospects, such as the ability to produce their own beer, have arisen as a result of the podcast’s success. In January 2019, Adam joined BT Sport to co-host the new UFC programme “Open Mat” with former world title contender Dan Hardy.
