Irishman Ken Doherty is a seasoned snooker professional known for his versatility as a commentator and radio presenter. Before going professional in 1990, Doherty had an impressive amateur career, claiming the Irish Amateur Championship twice and winning both the World Under-21 and World Amateur Championships. His professional track record includes six ranking tournament wins, which comprises victory over Stephen Hendry in the 1997 World Snooker Championship, marking Hendry’s first defeat in a world final. Doherty nearly shattered the famous Crucible curse but fell short in the 1998 final against John Higgins and again in 2003 to Mark Williams. He has been a consistent performer in major tournaments, finishing as runner-up three times in the UK Championship and twice in the Masters, with a career tally of over 350 century breaks.

His transition to a dual role of player and commentator began in 2009, and since then, Ken Doherty has been a familiar voice in snooker broadcasting. Doherty’s maiden ranking win came at the Welsh Open 1993, which moved him into the world’s top 16, a spot he held onto until the 2007-08 season. At 27, he captured the World Championship and became only the third non-British player to do so. He continued this exceptional form into 2001, winning the Welsh Open and Thailand Masters consecutively and almost bagging a third at the Scottish Open.

The beginning of the 2007–08 season wasn’t great for Doherty. However, he found success at the Masters, reaching the semi-finals after defeating notable opponents, only to be beaten by Mark Selby. The following seasons saw a return to form, with Doherty improving his rank from 44th to 30th, courtesy of his performances in the Shanghai Masters and Grand Prix. In the 2011-12 season, he ensured a semi-final berth at the Australian Goldfields Open, following a remarkable quarter-final victory over Mark Selby.

Ken Doherty continued competing and entered the Shanghai Masters in 2014 after winning three qualifying matches. He advanced to the last 32 at the UK Championship in 2014. A challenging encounter with Ronnie O’Sullivan in the second round of the UK Championship in 2018 resulted in him ultimately conceding victory to O’Sullivan after a fiercely contested match. At the end of the 2020 season, Doherty fell out of the top 64 and the professional tour. Doherty joined the BBC snooker team in 2009, and to radio, where he entertains as a presenter on East Coast FM and hosts a Saturday sports show on Sunshine 106.8FM.
