In 2021 his first book was published by Headline: the semi-autobiographical ‘Not for me, Clive’. Following requests from his social media followers Clive has also made prints of his famous commentary charts available to purchase online.
Tyldesley was born in Radcliffe, Lancashire, and was educated at Bury Grammar School, Kirkham Grammar School and the University of Nottingham. He obtained an honours degree in Industrial Economics, but always wanted to pursue a career in sports commentating.
In June 1975, he began his broadcast career straight from university with Radio Trent in Nottingham, where he became their regular Nottingham Forest reporter. In April 1977, he joined Radio City (Liverpool) and remained there for the next 12 years.
After succeeding Elton Welsby as City’s sports editor, he covered the successes of Everton and Liverpool through the late 1970s and 1980s. Tyldesley was on-air at the scene of the Heysel disaster in 1985, but did not attend Liverpool’s tragic FA Cup semi-final at Hillsborough in 1989. He was heavily involved in City’s coverage of the aftermath of the disaster.
