Ian was one of the original presenters on Chesterfield Hospital Radio in the mid 80s before moving on to two FM stations in the 1990s.
Originally from Derbyshire, Ian has lived in Buckinghamshire for 24 years and hadn't picked up the microphone since living in the area until late last year, when he a joined a Cardiff-based station to present an oldies show.
Despite having had such a gap away from radio, the buzz of presenting returned very quickly, and Ian took the opportunity to join WVR.
On joining the station, Ian commented: "I'm delighted to be a new recruit to the team. WVR has already established a clear and professional identity. The station is something the local community should be very proud of."

Simon retired in 2016 after a radio career spanning almost 40 years.
He began his career with the British Forces Broadcasting Service (BFBS) in Cyprus. It was at that time that he made his debut on national radio, on the fondly remembered 'Family Favourites' on BBC Radio Two.
His Sony Award winning show 'Simon & the Squad' became a daily listen for British troops in Iraq in the first Gulf War - it was simulcast on BFBS stations worldwide and on BBC Radio Five Live.
One of his favourite jobs was as breakfast presenter on Heart Brighton - "a wonderful station and, in summer, an unforgettable vibe in a fantastic town".
Simon also had short stints at LBC Radio, and BBC World Service.
Simon's best moment? "Probably interviewing Prime Minister John Major - inside No.10 Downing Street. That's some radio studio", grins Simon.
