Spence presented the nightly football magazine 90 Minutes on BBC Radio Scotland from 2004 until it was axed in 2006 to make way for more comprehensive sports coverage. Spence now hosts the station's weeknight programme Sportsound twice a week.
Spence is a fan of Dundee United F.C.. He became an Internet hit in 2009 after a faltering interview with Slovakian goalkeeper Dušan Perniš. Despite Perniš apologising for his poor English, Spence continues the interview with limited success. He is forced to rephrase each question several times, but just receives baffled looks from the goalkeeper.
