Pete Pinnington started out his career as a professional & entertaining Radio Presenter and is now enjoying over 25 years experience in the radio & events industry.
Born in Liverpool, Pete Pinnington began entertaining the public at the age of 14, when he became the resident DJ for numerous party events at his local tennis club. This passion and love of entertaining encouraged him to aim for a career in radio, and he volunteered with hospital radio which then led in-store for Radio Top Shop, HMV and community radio before getting his big break in Commercial radio at Signal 1 in Stoke.
From there, Pete spent 2 years with Rock FM in Preston and was then offered the opportunity & challenge to help launch Cheshire's new commercial radio station – 107.2 Wire FM.
Since the station launched in 1998, Pete & Wire FM have grown beyond all expectations, and, as a result of this, Pete Pinnington has built up a successful reputation with not only the thousands of listeners to his radio show but across the radio & events industry too.
