ABOUT... JED PITMAN - Director
Jed has worked in the media for the last 23 years as a writer and broadcaster winning several industry awards along the way. He is best known for being the co-creator of Britain's first ever fantasy football game with the Daily Telegraph, a newspaper he has written columns for for 16 years. He was also well known in the South and West after becoming Head of Sport at HTV in Bristol where he produced and presented all of their sports output for a decade as well as presenting the regional news for the station. He has also written two comedy cricket books, using the name Geoffrey Trueman, and has won awards as a producer of music documentaries for BBC Radio 2. His voice will also be recognisable as he does a lot of voice over work for the BBC and ITV national sport's output and on various radio campaigns. He also presents an afternoon show for Bristol-based radio station Star. Jed began his career working as a cricket commentator for Cricketcall, an 0898 service offering daily commentary on all Leicestershire matches.  During this time he became the Managing Editor of the South West arm of Clubcall updating daily news for eight professional clubs in South Wales and the South West. From there he moved into local radio with BBC Wiltshire Sound, BBC GLR and Jazz FM as a presenter and was a regular contributor on BBC Radio Five's comedy sports show, The Game's Up, in which he did impressions with Jon Culshaw. Jed added TV presenting and producing to his CV and spent a decade as a Head of Sport at ITV West/HTV. It was in his role at ITV West that Jed won Regional TV Personality of the Year and South West Sports Journalist of the Year. He added a Sony Award and a World Radio Award at the New York Festival for co-producing documentaries for Radio 2 on songwriter, Rod Temperton and Michael Jackson's Thriller LP. Indeed, he was the last person to do a doco about Jacko before his untimely death. He has recently completed a third show on Ian Dury and the Blockheads. He is also currently writing an explosive and controversial account of a famous incident at a football stadium in the mid naughties and presents a fortnightly boxing show on Ricky Hatton's website.
