His modeling career took off from there, and he modeled for several years before leaving to pursue a career in journalism.
In January 2004, he formally joined BBC Radio 1 as a presenter for a Sunday entertainment show. Four months later, he was handed the weekend slot of 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., thereby replacing Colin Murray and Edith Bowman. Vernon filled in for Edith Bowman when she was on maternity leave in 2008.
