Well known for his “Cheap Eats” series, Liam loves to find as he puts it, “good nosh for cheap.”

“This is pants down the best gig in TV. I get paid to have fun and turn viewers on to the unique people and places around the Bay and beyond,” says Liam.

Liam’s broadcasting career began at the age of 16, reading cricket scores at County Sound Radio, Guildford in Southern England.

His TV career kicked into gear in 1989 when he joined Channel TV on the island of Jersey, UK as a News Announcer and reporter. He left the island in 1994 and ventured west to get a piece of the “American dream”.
