Ally started his presenting career over 35 years ago with Radio Tay. Beginning in the sales department, he swiftly transitioned to the airwaves and what started as a weekly stint blossomed into a full-time passion. For an impressive 13 years, Ally charmed listeners every morning on Tay’s breakfast show, consistently achieving record-breaking listening figures.

Later in his career, Ally helmed the Ally Bally Show and Scotland’s Talk In across weekends, reaching audiences far and wide on Bauer’s Greatest Hits Network stations. The thought-provoking Talk In, known for its incisive discussions, saw Ally interview the likes of Nicola Sturgeon, Alex Salmond, Willie Rennie and Ruth Davidson amongst many others.

Alongside presenting, Ally has held several prominent positions within Bauer Media including Regional Managing Director, Programme Director, and Managing Director. Over the course of his career Ally is immensely proud to have interviewed the likes of Alesha Dixon, Alfie Boe, Art Garfunkel, Beverley Knight, Brian Cox, Carrie Underwood, Dionne Warwick, Dolly Parton, Donny Osmond, Doris Day, Geoffrey Archer, Jim Kerr, Kathrine Jenkins, Mary Portas, Russell Watson, Sir Cliff Richard and Sir Rod Stewart.
