Well this is exciting. Hello, I’m Lynne. Radio presenter on Pure Radio daytime, mum of two boys, Cockapoo owner and wife of a St Johnstone fan.
I’ve been in radio for more than 20 years now.
(And saying that makes me feel very old.)
But it’s been a blast.
And I love doing something that doesn’t feel like work, talking and playing great music on a daily basis.
I’m trying to embrace getting older.
But I’m also trying to cling on to every bit of youth I have left in me.
Or as much as I can get away with at least.
I’m talking like I’m about 95 years old here, but I’m actually 38.
I can’t quite believe it. But then I probably don’t act my age.
I go to the gym. Lots.
I wish I’d had this enthusiasm for the gym when I was in high school.
Every week I’d be missing PE due to some made up excuse.
Unfortunately the PE teacher caught on when I had my period for six weeks in a row.
Now I’ve realised it’s not only good to feel fit and strong.
Working out is great for your mental health too and sometimes a short blast of exercise is good for the soul.
Running, weights and a Chinese buffet: the Lynne Hoggan workout plan
I’m currently doing a 12 week transformation course with my gym, Club 300, in Perth.
I’d got to a point where I was looking in the mirror and hating what I saw.
I needed something to focus on.
So for the past nine weeks I’ve been tracking food, doing regular workouts and getting a certain amount of steps in per day.
Yes, it’s tough.
Sometimes I just want to go a Chinese buffet and eat my body weight in noodles, satay and prawn crackers.
But I feel great and see a huge difference already. And I can’t wait to update you on my journey in another few weeks.
You’ll know as well as I do though that life gets in the way at times. So I’m not going to lie – there’s been the odd wee meal out here and there.
But it’s all about balance, right?
Yes to tattoos, no to trolls
I love eating out (a lot), DJing, spending time with my kids, going to the movies and cooking.
I have tattoos, one is Ghostbusters themed and I the other is for Britpop.
And I am originally from Falkirk but have been living in Perthshire for the past eight or nine years.

I love Only Fools and Horses and I’ve had my nose pierced since I was 13 years old.
Hopefully that gives you a wee of an idea about who I am.
And if you want to know anything else, just drop me a message.
I’m @lynneontheradio on socials.
But please, no trolling, I don’t have time for idiots on social media.
I’m excited to bring you my chat every week and I hope you enjoy reading it.
And if you want to tune in to my chat too, I’m on Pure Radio, Monday to Friday from 10am until 1pm and on a Saturday from 1-4pm.
