Ross grew up in Armagh and attended St Patricks Grammar School, Armagh Technical College and The College of Business Studies, Belfast. He is a chef by trade, but started out DJing in Northern Ireland clubs, bars and discos while studying at college.
Ross has worked for several radio stations across the United Kingdom. He presented on Rock FM in Preston from 1992, moving to Capital FM in London in 1998 to present the Evening Show.  In 2001, he joined Radio Aire in Leeds to host the mid morning show, where he remained for 4 years. He also occasionally presented on Magic 828 and hosted a Sunday morning show named Radio Aire’s Greatest Hits, playing songs from the 80’s and 90’s.
In 2005, Ross left Aire to join Radio City (Liverpool). He hosted the breakfast show and mid morning shows there for over 10 years, before moving over to Radio City 2 in 2016. The station was rebranded as Greatest Hits Radio in 2019 and Ross has hosted the Breakfast Show since launch, broadcasting across the United Kingdom on FM, Medium Wave and DAB.
