Mohammad was born and brought up in Cardiff to a Pakistani father and Welsh mother, going to school at Glyn Derw High School. He studied Welsh and Politics at Swansea University, and then attended Cardiff University for a postgraduate diploma in broadcast journalism.
Mohammad's love of sports meant he presented items from Wales and overseas, including the Commonwealth Games, the Ryder Cup and numerous FA Cup finals. He is also anchor for Wales on Saturday, BBC Wales' television sports results programme and presents the BBC Wales Sports Personality of the Year Award.
Mohammad was a main presenter for BBC Wales Today. He can often be heard presenting on BBC Radio Wales, and, as a fluent learner of Welsh, makes regular appearances on the Welsh language station BBC Radio Cymru.
He has presented Children in Need, and has even made guest appearances in Doctor Who and its spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures hosting fiction news reports. In 2013 he was one of the presenters of the BBC's coverage of the 2013 World Snooker Championship.
Mohammad built up a regular following on Saturday evenings on BBC Radio Wales with the Extra Time sports phone-in. Mohammad and Owen Money took calls from football and rugby fans at 18:00, but have now been replaced by BBC Radio Five Live's 6-0-6. However, Mohammad and Money now team up on the Extra Time Quiz, a spin-off from the phone-in.
