James Richardson is a hugely popular broadcaster whose work continues to span European football’s best quality leagues.
Amongst football fans, James is perhaps best known for presenting Football Italia - Channel 4’s iconic coverage of Italian football.
He spent 10 high-calorie years roaming the peninsula, covering what was then the world’s most glamorous football league.
Currently working for TNT Sport and the Premier League, James has also hosted a range of other programmes, from World’s Strongest Man to The Great Model Railway Challenge.
In 2006, James co-founded the Guardian’s hugely successful Football Weekly podcast which he hosted until 2017, when he left to launch the award winning Totally Football Show.
James is a keen student of cinema and languages, and can speak Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and a little Japanese, and plays ice hockey very badly.
