Clive Bull

LBC presenter and host of The Property Hour.

Clive's radio career has spanned more than three decades. The Independent hailed Clive as "The Emperor of night-time talk radio" and his unique show was the subject of a Channel 4 documentary. Clive later won a Sony award and was voted Best Talk Show Host at the New York International Radio Festival, in addition to being ranked the top phone-in presenter in a Radio Times survey of the most powerful people in the industry.

Now, having become one of LBC's longest-serving presenters, he is equally at home covering breaking news, debating the state of the nation or assisting listeners with their queries during his show's regular professional advice sessions.

In the long-running feature, The Property Hour, Clive and his panel of experts help to guide callers through all aspects of the mortgage maze and to unravel the complex issues faced by householders, whether they are buyers, sellers, tenants - or indeed, landlords.
