Winning Lines


Mayo continues a family line of media workers, as his mother was the manager of a radio studio. He studied history and politics at university. Via Radio Nottingham, he landed a job at Radio 1 in 1986. His popular Confessions feature, where listeners wrote in to confess to naughty past deeds, was turned into a successful - if controversial - BBC1 format. He has an interest in religion, and has written a book and hosted a series taking a comical look at the world of cults, beliefs and factions. In 2010 he moved from his long-running morning show on Five Live to take up the Radio 2 drivetime slot recently vacated by Chris Evans.


He once worked as a car park attendant before landing his first job in local radio.
