David Chidgey

As a Television Producer & Director for many years, producing documentaries and studio shows on football, cricket and rugby, ‘Chidge’ thought he’d finally escaped the clutches of the media. But, like Al Pacino, just when he thought he was out, it pulled him back in. As a consequence, he now finds himself presenting the Love Sport Sunday show as well as contributing to the Chelsea Fans show and occasional Breakfast show!

A Chelsea FC supporter and season ticket holder for over 30 years, he is well known as the presenter of the award winning Chelsea FanCast podcast for the last 10 years, earning himself the sobriquet ‘The Podfather’ and other less than polite nicknames. He also writes a weekly column for Football.London and is a regular writer for the ‘cfcuk’ Fanzine; The Evening Standard; Yahoo UK Sport and International Business Times.

As the Chairman of the Chelsea Supporters’ Trust he is a champion of football supporter’s issues, which is just as well as he relishes speaking truth to power and is something of a curmudgeon! Tune in to Chidge from 12.00 pm to 3.30 pm for Love Sport Sunday.
