Ed Doolan

Born 20 July 1941

Ed Doolan joined Britain's first provincial commercial radio station (BRMB) when it was set up, broadcasting his own mix of current affairs and politics. His programmes give Birmingham listeners an insight into how the city is run, acting as an interface between public servants and rate-payers. He moved this formula to BBC WM in 1982.

Doolan's services to the Birmingham have been recognised by Honorary Doctorates from all three of the city's universities.
