Francis's first big break in radio came in 1985 with a stint on North Sea pirate Radio Caroline and he has also worked as a presenter for Chiltern Radio in Herts/Beds/Bucks, Invicta FM in Kent and Capital FM in London.
In his Virgin Radio stint, Francis has presented the 1pm-4pm show and various other shows. In early 2007, he was "sidelined" to a fill-in DJ role also doing the Saturday Midnight-6am slot and Sunday 2am-8am Slot and was heard occasionally on the Sunday Night Show 7pm-Midnight but in July 2007, he became a full-time presenter again, taking over the drivetime show from Ben Jones. He returned to the weekday afternoon slot on 3 December 2007.
Neil covered the drivetime Gold Network show on 25 August 2010. His last regular weekly show on the network was Saturday afternoons from 1-3pm, when most stations on the network take local sport, thereby severely restricting any available audience.
