Dave Riche


Dave has returned to radio after 12 years and is determined to make up for lost time.

His first foray into radio was at University in the 1990s covering Warrington Town, so it is ironic that The Yellows now feature on Lymm Radio Sport!

A trained journalist by trade, Dave became Sports Editor of the Evening News in Nuneaton and also wrote for Total Football and Four Four Two magazines.

He then moved into radio presenting a weekly football show for BBC Coventry and Warwickshire alongside working as a Business Development Manager in football.

It was a case of poacher turned gamekeeper as he eventually hung up his microphone and focussed on working in football.

After a chat with his former Uni roommate Paul Smith, Dave came out of radio retirement and is now looking to develop sport for the station and the community.

Initially focussing on sports bulletins, this will now grow into a weekly sports show in 2022 and who knows how far we can take it!

And off the field, Dave is going to be working on the business side of things for the radio as we look to develop partnerships with businesses, clubs and organisations.

Dave is married to Clare and has two sons, Harry and Teddy, and a couple of dogs Buddy and Tilly.
