Owain has a wealth of live studio and outside broadcasting television experience. Starting out his career in youth news at BBC Wales and becoming the youngest staff journalist to be employed by the corporation, Owain has worked in entertainment, news, youth and factual. More recently he has ventured into the world of weather journalism as an on-screen forecaster, having studied meteorology with the Open University.
Credits include BBC Breakfast, BBC Radio One and Netflix – having presented a series of short films for the US TV Show Queer Eye’s Pride coverage. Owain was featured in news feeds across the globe in 2017 after producing a viral drag themed weather forecast. This was later published by the producers of US drag reality show RuPaul’s Drag Race, as well as BBC Three and BBC One in the UK – with the clips amassing millions of views worldwide. LGBT issues are important to Owain. He has worked as a main host for countless Pride events across both England and Wales over the years, entertaining crowds of thousands on stages up and down the country. His work in the LGBT community has led to a prominent place in Wales’ Pinc List for four years running, amongst the top 20 most influential LGBT individual in Wales. As well as youth news and light entertainment, Owain is equally capable tackling a breaking global news story, having spent time as a journalist and presenter at BBC World Service, with a special interest in technology and environmental topics. A semi-professional drummer, he still enjoys making lots of noise and has a keen interest in all things motoring.
