Russ Morris / DJ
Broadcasting for seventeen years, Russ Morris is one of the UK’s most successful radio personalities.
Russ’ radio career began in North Wales, presenting his first show at the tender age of seventeen. Since then he has broadcast on some of the UK’s biggest radio stations in Stoke on Trent, Cardiff and London.
In 2005, Russ arrived in Birmingham where he became one of the city’s brightest stars. In almost nine years Russ presented every show on Brmb/Free Radio, but became famous for presenting the mid morning show for five years.
Russ is no stranger to the stars. From JLS to Paul Weller, Girls Aloud to Amy Winehouse, Russ has interviewed some of the biggest names in music: he was one of the first to speak to Victoria Beckham about her solo career and chatted exclusively to Robbie Williams about the Take That reunion.
If there is a live event in the West Midlands, chances are Russ will be hosting it. He regularly hosts some of the Midlands biggest events ranging from award ceremonies at the ICC through to huge music concerts at the LG arena, where recently he hosted ‘Free Radio Live’ to over 14,000 people. In 2012, Russ also hosted the Team Jamaica Welcome Dinner at the University of Birmingham where he presented to Usain Bolt and the city’s dignitaries.
No stranger to big audiences, Russ hosts every Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion home game, getting thousands of fans ready for the match. During the summer months Russ swaps football for cricket and is the host at Edgbaston Cricket Ground for the Warwickshire T20 matches.
In May 2014 Russ was delighted to join Heart to launch their North West service, where he presents the 4-7 Drive show.
“It’s so exciting that Heart is launching in the North West and it’s an honour and privilege to be part of the line up, having grown up in the area. I can’t wait to be part of our listeners lives each afternoon!”
Russ was born in Wrexham, North Wales and now lives in Sutton Coldfield.
