Durham began his broadcasting career in Leeds in the early 1990s working on the TEAMtalk telephone service, alongside reporters such as BBC Radio 5 Live commentator Ian Dennis, which was established as an independent rival to Clubcall.
He currently hosts TalkSPORT's "Drivetime" on weekdays between 4pm–7pm alongside former England cricketer Darren Gough. Durham styles himself as the world's only celebrity Peterborough United fan. He was described in The Guardian as an "expert phone-in troll, arrogantly spouting inflammatory football opinions in the hope of prompting some indignant phone rage from an uppity fan." He once accused Jamie Carragher of being a "bottler" for retiring from international football, which prompted the Liverpool and England defender to call in to the show to confront Durham. His criticism of Celtic manager Neil Lennon prompted a phone call from Celtic fan Rod Stewart, who gave Durham a "gentle lashing".
