Stephen began his announcing career in the 1970s. He became the senior BBC Northern Ireland announcer in the late-1980s and was heard less and less during peak time, having moved to cover early morning and lunchtime regional news opts, which weren’t part of the rota for his staff until the late-1990s.
Stephen had rarely been heard on air since 2000. One exception was when he voiced a promotional trail for the animated series On the Air (c. 2005), which was based on the late Gerry Anderson’s radio show.
Stephen retired from broadcasting in 2009.
