Edgar had a brief stint as a continuity announcer with Ulster Television in the early 1970s before heading around the corner to the BBC and taking on a similar TV role there. He moved to the BBC in London in March 1978, to take up a post as a BBC Radio 4 announcer. He remained in that role until 1981.

Edgar spent some time managing the BBC’s Ascension Island facility. He would later return to BBC Northern Ireland: he produced the George Jones show for BBC Radio Ulster; and he would return to television continuity in 1994. Edgar also had a spell as head of presentation at BBC Northern Ireland (dates TBC).

Edgar retired from the BBC after 33 years on Sunday 26th February 2006: his final announcement was broadcast at 1.40am on BBC One Northern Ireland.
