Tam Cowan


Tam Cowan is best known as one of Scotland’s most favourite television and radio presenters, he is also a top newspaper columnist and restaurant reviewer. He has become a huge hit as a host and after dinner speaker for corporate events.

From his hometown of Motherwell, Tam showed early promise as a comedy writer gaining writing credits for Radio 2’s Week Ending show whilst still at school. Subsequently, his popular football columns were featured in the Glasgow Evening Times. Not long after, he caught the attention of Radio Scotland and has been at the helm of their most popular show, Off the Ball, since 1994. In 1995, Tam was joined by Stuart Cosgrove to help co-host the show and between them, they’ve achieved two coveted Sony awards with their Friday and Saturday football shows. They now also present the Sunday Supplement which will return to the airwaves in the new season with more great guests and intelligent debate.

In 1998, Tam moved to TV with his first presenting gig for the show Offside on BBC Choice, and in 2000 the show transferred to BBC Scotland along with yearly Scottish Cup Final specials. The show has received two Royal Television Society awards for the 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! He has also presented Taxi for Cowan for BBC Scotland and the two shows gained Tam another gong; this time a Royal Television Society award for Best Regional Presenter. Even with his huge television and radio success, Tam still writes weekly for his popular restaurant review column in the Scottish Sun.

The brilliantly talented Tam Cowan is a superb addition to any corporate event, providing well devised presentations filled with humour in accordance with diverse range of subjects.
