About Martyn Lee

Norfolk-born Martyn made his way to One Golden Square via radio stations along the South Coast.

After graduating from Bournemouth University he initially moved into radio production, but the lure of being behind the microphone was too strong, and he was soon presenting his own shows.

As his on air career progressed it wasn't long before his passion for music would lead to him to take on Head of Music responsibilities, choosing the music that radio stations play.

In 2009 Martyn was reunited with old friends Christian O'Connell and Richie Firth to produce the breakfast show at Absolute Radio, enjoying Radio Academy Award success. One year later he took on the challenge of not only presenting on, but also running, a newly launched spin off station called Absolute 80s.

Martyn has hosted loads of Absolute 80s festival coverage and loves making documentaries and special shows with the likes of Tony Hadley, Alison Moyet, Simple Minds and more.

When he's not on the radio (which isn't very often) he's a big Norwich City fan and is also pretty handy with a paintbrush and roller.
