Simon Clarke

Simon Clarke Biography

Simon is host of Wave 105’s afternoon show and Sunday breakfast.

After growing up landlocked in the West Midlands Simon says he has the best of both worlds living in such a wonderful part of the country, close to the stunning beaches and beautiful sights of The New Forest.

Since joining he has taken up lots of exciting challenges for our “Cash For Kids” charity including a Skydive, abseiling down the Spinnaker Tower, fire walking and setting The Guinness World Record for the world’s longest underwater broadcast (which he still has at 5 hours 6 minutes!).

When not at work you can find him cycling, in the cinema or doing something fun with his kids.
