Leeds lad Rich Williams wakes up Leeds on Radio Aire Breakfast alongside co-host Naomi Kent each morning. Rich is passionate about all things Leeds, from going to Elland Road, to strolling through Roundhay Park with his family, watching the cricket at Headingley or just going for a drink in The Electric Press in town.


Broadcasting live from Burley Road, 96.3 Radio Aire has the latest local news every half hour and travel news every 15 minutes when our listeners need it most. We know what it’s like to support the Rhinos and United, to hate getting stuck on the inner ringroad and to feel passionate about stopping the closure of the Leeds Children’s Heart Unit. We know what matters to our listeners because we live here too.
