About Scott Ross

A lifelong passion for radio, love of music and a belief in the importance of real local radio! These are the reasons why I joined Phoenix FM, where I've been presenting a regular show since August 2010. My regular weekday midday shows are shared with other presenters and include funny stories and a wide variety of guests. When I'm not on Phoenix FM you can catch me on other radio bands as I am also a licenced radio amateur - 2E0ESX. Radio is supposed to be a “fun’” industry so it’s really great to be part of a real local station offering the freedom to be ourselves and have fun on air.
