Les Ross

Born 7 February 1949




Les Ross cut his teeth in playing records in discos and nightclubs in Birmingham before realising his ambition to become a broadcaster.
After a spell with BBC Radio Birmingham and Radio Tees he joined BRMB where he remained for 26 years.

Ross epitomised the expertise of the truly local radio presenter, uniting the huge Midlands city into one community and earning Chris Tarrant’s description as "the definitive voice of Birmingham".

In 2009, Ross retired for the second time, having spent the previous three years on BBC Radio WM.
