The Guinness world record holder for the youngest sports commentator is Zach Spedden (USA) (b. 8 July 1992), who on 25 August 2002 called an entire nine inning baseball game aged 10 years 48 days.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the youngest radio presenter, set by Kimberley Perez (b. 20 February 1998) (USA), who hosts a show every Saturday 3-7pm, on KLAX 97.9 La Raza FM, in Los Angeles, California, USA, which started when she was 5 years old.
Jack, who features in the 2013 Guinness Book of World Records, started writing his song at the age of 10.
He said: "It is something I have wanted to do for ages so I'm really pleased to have finished it.
"It was so much fun to do. I want to get a record label so I can bring out more songs.
"It is really cool to make my own song and have other people listen to my music. I hope it will get played on Kiss FM or Radio One.
"I'll definitely play it on my radio show too."
He spent two days in studios owned by DJ Gareth Clegg in Bristol – laying down his music first before adding lyrics.
Talented Jack first stepped into the DJ booth helping dad Bob run his mobile karaoke disco as just three. He now runs solo discos on Saturday night and has his own show at 7am on Sundays, on local station Nova 107.7 FM.
