Pete Snodden Starting as a DJ during his university years, Pete joined Cool FM after graduating and it wasn’t long before he was given his own breakfast show, combining his two passions of music and presenting.
This role has seen him at the helm of the most listened to commercial radio show in Northern Ireland for five successful years, during which he has won two prestigious awards – Media Personality of the Year at the 2008 FATE Awards and Media Personality of the Year at the GO Awards 2009.
Pete’s belief is that the listener should feel part of the show and with that in mind he gives listeners the stage to share their funny stories and take part in the varying topics of conversation every morning. He has also interviewed many famous faces – from Noel Gallagher to Louis Walsh and Leona Lewis to Cheryl Cole.
Outside of the breakfast show, Pete also hosts Cool FM’s Saturday night dance music show, ‘The Source’.
He has also made a number of TV appearances, presenting the entertainment slot on UTV Life and appearing as a panellist on UTV’s Late and Live programme as well as the Seven Thirty show. In addition, he has taken part in the BBC’s Panic Attack Celebrity Christmas Special, Children in Need and warmed up for The Friday Show on BBC1.
He does occasionally get away from the station to go to the pub, play football or a round of golf and host high profile events such as The Magners Light Style Awards, Pepsi Sexiest Man, Red Bull Soap Box Race, Sports Relief and the St Patricks Day Celebrations in Belfast. Pete juggles all these commitments and events to stand proud as an ambassador for The Unite Against Hate Campaign and The Prince’s Trust.
