A considerable part of James’ professional career was spent with a multinational advertising agency in Sydney, and then for many years managing their offices in Asia, Dubai, Budapest and Istanbul. It was during his time in Asia that he first tasted the delights of presenting, by moonlighting as a classical music presenter at ASTRO (Asia Satellite TV and Radio).

Since joining the station in 2010 as a presenter, he has also been involved in training, is a member of various working groups, and writes promos and other station communications.

James presents a wide variety of programs – including Breakfast, The Classical Era, Concert Hall and Drive.
