On April 23, 1945, Richard John Gwynne, also known as John Gwynne, was born. On July 9, 2022, at the age of 77, he passed away from cancer. He worked as a sports analyst, English teacher, and reporter. For the PDC darts competitions, which are aired on Sky Sports, Gwynne gave commentary.
In February 2013, he announced that he would retire in the summer. 2016 World Championship was his last match for Sky Sports. 2014 saw his induction into the PDC Hall of Fame. The BDO World Championship, Winmau World Masters, and Six Nations Cup are just a few of the BDO darts competitions that Gwynne has begun to commentate on for Eurosport later in 2014.
In the years that followed, he occasionally offered commentary on Sky Sports during the PDC World Championship’s preliminary rounds, but he didn’t do so at all in 2020. Nevertheless, he put a lot of work into Talk Sport’s radio coverage of the game. He was a speedway reporter for Piccadilly Radio at Belle Vue in Manchester in 1980.
On the Talking Sport podcast, he later changed to covering regional North West football and darts. His first paid commentary job was with Cricket Call, a phone-based service, covering matches for the Lancashire County Cricket Club. This was his between 1988 and 1991 performance. He provided commentary for the International Socca Federation’s Six-a-Side World Cup competitions.
