Adrian Durham (born 13 May 1969, Peterboroughmarker, Englandmarker) is an English football journalist and broadcaster.

Career

Durham currently hosts "Bowtime" Monday-Thursday between 4:00pm-7:00pm alongside ex-cricketer Darren Gough. His previous slot before the 2006 World Cup on the station was presenting "Kick-Off" with Alvin Martin, Ray Houghton, or Gary Stevens.

Broadcasting style

Adrian often takes controversial positions in discussions, which are usually disagreed with by listeners and co-presenters, sometimes resulting in a heated argument. One of his suggestions is that he could do a better job than the current England manager, since, in his view, the only attribute an England manager needs is passion. He has also accused Thierry Henry of going missing in big games.

Jamie Carragher incident

On 9 July 2007, Liverpool and England defender Jamie Carragher announced he was considering retiring from international football. For this, Durham labelled Carragher a "bottler". Durham repeated this opinion when Carragher called in to his programme to disagree with Durham's statement.

Television

Durham claimed that he does not own a television because "there is nothing worth watching on TV" and that "it ruined conversation." When asked by fellow presenter Rodney Marsh how he watched football on television, Durham said that he either went to his local pub or listened to the match on the radio.

In July 2006, Durham presented live coverage of Celtic's tour of America on Irish satellite channel, Setanta Sports.

Personal

Durham is an avid Peterborough United fan.
