Here’s how Alex became the saviour of BBC Radio Leeds and the talk of Yorkshire;
Belfield is a unique personality radio presenter who is a comedian, entertainer, interviewer and journalist. He can cope with any eventuality on the air.
Alex is best known for his irreverent interaction with his “punters”. Belfield loves to tease the audience and make sure they join in throughout the show. Alex is a musician by trade and adores music, he is passionate about the music he plays on air.
In 2010/11 Belfield went back to the Beeb full time and added 42,000 new listeners in the first 6 months @ BBC Radio Leeds. This was the highest figures for the station in over 6 years.
Alex built the highest peak of the day at 9am attracting a staggering 50,000 listeners according to Rajar.
Since Alex’s departure BBC Leeds have lost a depressing 700,000+ listenening hours and now have their worst figures in the stations history. They’ve gone from 18% reach to 12% reach. Whoopsy.
Belfield is best known for his Celebrity interviews. He’s done almost everyone over the last 17 years and you can hear 100′s of top interviews with Royalty, movie Stars and his favourite comedians and performers.

Belfield’s most high profile interview was the last interview with Jimmy Savile. This interview appeared in full on BBC Radio 2 on Christmas day in 2011 and as a 2 page spread in the Sun Newspaper (twice) and the Daily Mirror.
Here’s Jimmy’s staggering revelation that he ‘got away with it’. This interview has had more than 150,000 hits on Youtube:
