Donovan Blake
Donovan Blake started his journalistic career at Jarrolds Freelance agency in Ipswich, as a reporter covering news, sport and features for all media.It was there where he developed his appetite for sports broadcasting.
He became Sports Editor at SGR FM Radio in Ipswich and during his 4 years became News Editor, and ended his time there by producing and presenting SGR's coverage of the First Division play-off final between Ipswich Town and Barnsley at Wembley (what a way to finish!).Donovan eventually joined the Anglia Sports team in June 2000.
He considers himself to be an all-rounder (covering any sport is a challenge), although most of his efforts are concentrated on activities with Ipswich Town, and has recently taken on some of the football commentary duties with Anglia.Originally from Manchester, Donovan has lived in Ipswich since October 1988.
His hobbies are mainly sports based (music and good beer are not far behind!!) - he's a big cricket fan who still tries to play club cricket in Ipswich, but will try his hand at most sports, so long as it doesn't involve water!!?Oh, and comedy - he does like a laugh!
