BBC journalist, Cornelius Lysaght joined the BBC in 1990, presenting morning racing bulletins on what was then the brand new sports and children’s network, Radio 5 which later became 5 live.
At the forefront of reporting racing, he has broken a string of news stories from the plane crash that nearly killed Frankie Dettori to furious reaction amongst jockeys over new whip rules.
A well-known voice on 5 live, Cornelius led the racing team to success at radio’s Oscars, the Sony Awards, for coverage of the Cheltenham Festival in 2003.
