In 2016, Butters signed to host a weekly network show for Bauer City 1 broadcasting on Key 103, CFM, Free Radio, Hallam FM, Metro Radio, Radio Aire, Radio City, Rock FM, TFM and Viking FM. And in August 2017, he replaced Paddy McGuinness as host of Sunday mornings.
Butters left in October 2014, referring in a statement to Kenny Everett who famously abandoned parties as they were just getting going.
He regularly stood in for Scott Mills – first on early breakfast, then on drive-time. He also deputised for Chris Moyles on the Radio 1 breakfast show on bank holidays and at Christmas.
In October 2011, Butters was announced as BBC Radio Leeds' new mid-morning presenter. His programme, which contained phone ins, real-life stories, consumer issues and political interviews, became the highest rated on the station.
On its release in May 2010, his second book, Whatshisname, The Life and Death of Charles Hawtrey, was the number one selling biography on Amazon.
Manager Simon Jordan invited Wes to join BBC Radio 7 in May 2009 as one of the station's continuity announcers. He remained after its revamp to BBC Radio 4 Extra, where he continues to introduce a range of comedy and drama from the BBC's archive.
At the end of July 2008 Wes enjoyed another stint on breakfast, this time sitting in for Shaun Keaveny on BBC 6 Music.
Butters has written for a number of newspapers (including The Guardian), while his debut book, a biography of Carry On actor Kenneth Williams, came out in October 2008. Published by HarperCollins, Kenneth Williams Unseen was selected by Roger Lewis as one of the Daily Express Books of the Year. He also wrote the acclaimed two-part documentary The Pain of Laughter – The Last Days of Kenneth Williams for BBC Radio 4, broadcast in April 2008, which is available on his website.
In May 2007 he was voted North West England Presenter of the Year in the radio industry magazine X-Trax.
It was announced in June 2007 that Wes had "had enough of early starts" and that he wanted more time to focus on his other projects. Keen to keep him on the station he agreed with Galaxy to do a short afternoon show but in April 2008 he revealed that he would leave the group completely.
In February 2005 Butters left Radio 1 and the chart show underwent further changes to its format.
Soon after his final chart rundown on 30 January 2005 the press announced the launch of podshows.com, a joint venture by Butters and fellow broadcaster Daryl Denham. It was the world's first professional podcasting company, using presenters such as Tony Blackburn, Paul Gambaccini, Gary Davies and Terry Christian to record tailor-made programmes for MP3 players.
In October 2005 Butters agreed a deal with Galaxy and returned to the airwaves at Galaxy Manchester, winning a Silver Sony award for Best Breakfast Show and an Arqiva nomination for Best UK Presenter in 2006.
While presenting Radio 1's early breakfast show in November 2004, Butters played a track he had produced with Daryl Denham that mixed the infamous Crazy Frog ringtone with a dance beat. After thousands of listeners inundated the station wanting it played again, the record was signed by Gut Records. Auditions to find a Crazy Frog impersonator for its video and personal appearances were held in London, with vegetable processor Lee Fettes, from Dundee, landing the role. Despite The Sun describing "Ring Ding Ding" as the "worst single ever made", the record debuted at Number 11 in April and remained in the UK Top 40 for 5 weeks. Butters said, "You either love it or hate it. There's no in between."
In February 2003 Butters took over as host of The Radio 1 Chart Show on BBC Radio 1, and the programme was renamed The Official Chart Show with Wes. A change in the show's format led to greater coverage of top-selling albums and an end to the need for every entry in the Top 40 singles chart to be played.
On joining AA Roadwatch he shortened his name to Wes Butters. After a year presenting traffic and travel bulletins on local North West radio stations and periods on 96.5 Radio Wave (Blackpool), Wish FM (Wigan) and Century 105, he was offered the evening show on Century 106 in Nottingham. He left the station in 2000 to move to Newcastle as head of music and mid-morning presenter for Galaxy North East.
Butters attended Buile Hill High School in Pendleton, Salford, and studied at the University of Salford between 1995 and 1997, where he gained a National Diploma in Design & Media Communications, followed by a BA (Hons) Radio between 1997 and 1998.
