Undeterred, he became a radio DJ presenter for ‘Livewire’, the student radio station at the University of East Anglia while he studied for a Drama degree. Noted for his natural ability to entertain on air, he won 'Best Male Presenter' at the Student Radio Awards in 2005.
During university holidays Greg worked at Galaxy FM, and before long was soon covering shows across the Galaxy network before being snapped up by BBC Radio1. His first ever Radio 1 show was broadcast on 1st June 2007, the day after he graduated.
Greg was signed up to cover for JK and Joel on Radio1 but before long he was soon covering Sara Cox's weekend show as well after spending a month on the Early Breakfast Friday morning slot. He then became the regular stand-in presenter for Scott Mills' Drivetime show as well as sitting in for a number of shows such as The Surgery, BBC Switch, the Radio 1 Request Show and the Radio 1 Breakfast show on Bank Holidays.
Greg started presenting the Radio 1 Early Breakfast show full time in October 2007 and was promoted to the afternoon show, weekdays 1-4pm, in October 2009, which he continues to do. He still covers regularly for Scott Mills and fills in on The Official Chart show from time to time and continues to climb the ranks of Radio 1.
A huge fan of music, Greg tries to go to as many gigs as humanly possible and also performs his own live DJ sets at student unions across the country. He also anchored Radio 1's coverage of the Reading festival last year.
Greg has also branched out from radio and lent himself to voiceover work for Mumford and Sons, the Take That Progress Tour, 500 Days of Summer DVD and The Sims 3 video game. His CV extends to TV presenting following his role hosting the Red Button coverage for Radio 1's Big Weekend and also BBC Three documentaries, 'Young, Jobless and Living at Home' and 2010's 'Sun, Sex and Holiday Madness' on location in Magaluf.
