The Cromer-based writer, broadcaster and entertainer was born at Beeston in mid-Norfolk. He attended the village school and Hamond’s Grammar School at Swaffham before joining the local press in 1962.

Following stints at Thetford, East Dereham and Great Yarmouth, Keith moved to Norwich to specialise in sports journalism. He was Norwich City football correspondent for both the Eastern Evening News and the Eastern Daily Press in the 1970s.

He joined the original staff when BBC Radio Norfolk first went on air in 1980, carving out a reputation as an outspoken defender of the Norfolk way of life. He left in 1995 to pursue a freelance career – and has been extremely busy ever since.

His chapter in Tales from the City Volume 2 discusses life as Norwich's Football Correspondent.
