Phil Williams is back on the radio

After leaving BBC Radio 5 Live in May, Phil Williams is returning to radio to host the talkRADIO drivetime show for a week.

He’ll be covering for Eamonn Holmes from today, Monday 22nd July until Thursday 25th July 4pm – 7pm.

His colleague, and talkRADIO breakfast presenter Julia Hartley-Brewer tweeted that he’ll also be live from College Green on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Phil had spent 18 years at 5 Live and had presented the late show since 2013.

Previously, he’d worked at BBC Radio 1, GMR in Manchester and XFM London.

When he left 5 Live there was an amount of speculation as to where he might turn up next and it was probably fuelled a little when Phil tweeted: “Gone Fishing.”

Although his stint on talkRADIO is for just one week, we’re not sure if Phil has returned from his fishing trip permanently!
