Tam caught the attention of Radio Scotland and has been at the helm of their most popular show, Off the Ball, since 1994.

 

He was joined by co-host Stuart Cosgrove in 1995 and between them they've notched up two coveted Sony awards with their Friday and Saturday football shows.

Tam moved successfully into television in 1998 with Offside on BBC Choice, the show transferred to BBC Scotland in 2000 and ran for 7 years along with yearly Scottish Cup Final specials. The show received two Royal Television Society awards for Best Regional Sports Programme.

 

Tam is no sycophant when it comes to interviewing his guests and, in 2006, First Minister Jack McConnell didn't escape his acerbic tongue!
