I am Jonathan Hobbs
BETTER known as ‘Hobbsy’, Jonathan has been a familiar face on greyhound racing programmes for many years.
A member of the Sky Sports team which, for 15 years, broadcast all the major greyhound competitions including the Greyhound Derby at Wimbledon, he is a regular on Racing Post Greyhound TV and is a Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB) Ambassador
Along with Joao De Mata and Roy Brindley, Hobbsy featured on the popular ‘Morning Live’ programmes on ATR on Saturday mornings which featured discussion – and banter – on all sports, plus popular live action from Towcester greyhounds.
A greyhound given to the show, and suitably named Morning Live Len, won races on the channel and his cheerleaders in the studio were often seen waving and urging him on. Bedlam ensued when he won – a few times it should be added!
Football-wise, he’s a Chelsea supporter and season ticket holder and, a cricket lover too, follows Surrey and England. However, a fan all sports, he might throw the odd boxing bet when it comes to providing subscribers with his weekly ‘dogs to follow’!
