Paul Hawksbee: Sporting Memories Patron

Paul has co-presented the Hawksbee & Jacobs Show on talkSPORT radio for over 17 years, having first met co-host Andy Jacobs when they worked together as producers on Skinner & Baddiel's Fantasy Football League TV show.

Over the years he's been fortunate to meet and interview many sporting legends including Brian Clough, Sir Garfield Sobers, Joe Frazier and Sir Stirling Moss. One particular highlight saw former Heavyweight Champion George Foreman talking boxing while cooking steaks in the studio on his Lean Mean Grilling Machine!

Paul was also a former Head of Media at Chelsea FC, a presenter on TV show You're On Sky Sports - and the editor of football magazines 90 Minutes and Goal.

He has also been a comedy writer for, among others, Frankie Howard, The Two Ronnies, Rob Brydon and Al Murray The Pub Landlord and was part of the BAFTA-winning writing team on the long-running ITV series Harry Hill's TV Burp.

Paul is a (long-suffering) Spurs fan, having watched his first game at White Hart Lane in September 1968: a 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest.
