He occasionally makes appearances in the “Dictionary Corner” on Channel 4’s Countdown, the latest during the week of 11 April 2011.
When the original presenter Richard Whiteley died in 2005, Bruce said: “[he was] such a nice man – that was the defining quality of him, a genuinely nice man. And he had no real ego.
He’s still on the UK’s number one radio station from 9.30am at Radio 2 and his ratings are better than ever.
His quiz ‘Pop Master’ is the most popular quiz in radio.
In 1980, he took on the mid-morning slot and then, in 1983, he presented a daily afternoon current affairs show.
