Ian Downs shows
Ian has been a voice people have heard on the radio in North Oxfordshire for over 20 years now. He spent his early years in the Witney area and after a stint at university in Plymouth headed back home and became a successful part of the team at Fox FM in Oxford.
At the end of the 1990s Ian left Fox to become the launch breakfast presenter and programme controller for a new station in Newbury and during this time came back to Banbury to host a show during our 2001 trail broadcasts.
Ian has worked at a number of other radio stations since then in some of the UK’s biggest markets and with massive audience figures, but jumped at the chance to take over weekday afternoons back on Banbury FM in 2019 – back in his native home county of Oxfordshire.
Outside of radio Ian and his husband Ethan were married in July 2018 and are proud parents to gorgeous four legged friends!
