two figures from his Scottish past





The first is Andrew Crummey, who headed the sales team at Scottish TV.

’He was my first employer and taught me all the skills required to be a

salesman. I worked for him for six years and it was gut-wrenching when I

left for London. I didn’t realise how well he’d taught me until I was on

my own in the big bad smoke.’



Also on the STV team was Emap sales supremo Tom Toumazis, who later

recruited Muncaster for Eurosport. ’Tom was not only phenomenally

talented, he knew how to recruit a diverse team of people who worked

well together. And he’s great with numbers - a skill that is often

overlooked in this industry.’
