I’ve been working in radio since 2009. I made my radio début on SIREN FM, Lincoln’s premier community radio station, as the television correspondent for Graham King’s arts show, twice a week. To summarise, my main task was to watch The Apprentice, make notes, and talk about the justice/injustice of each episode. I had to start somewhere. Included in this role was reading travel updates and also the occasional weather bulletin.
From 2010 onwards, I was co-presenter on the SIREN FM media show ‘New Wave’. This role took me far and wide (in Lincoln), up high (on climbing walls) and down low (mostly on ground-level). At the end of 2011, I became a senior producer on the show, delegating the up high and down low tasks to a new set of presenters on the show, and helping to alter the show’s remit and USP to something more resembling a now-needed arts and media show on the station.
At the start of 2012, I was offered a unique challenge: To start a new, student-only radio station for the University of Lincoln. With only the name decided upon, it was up to me, along with a talented team of students, to get the radio station off the ground and onto the airwaves.
The station broadcasts for six hours, six days a week, and is soon to move to a new, upgraded studio thanks to funding from the university.
I also present my own show. Based around consumer technology, Tech at Teatime is an off-beat look at the week’s tech news, as well as some slightly more informative pieces to help the show’s audience decide which technology is best for them. With industry experts as guests, the audience, thankfully, won’t have to fully rely on my technology expertise throughout the show’s run.
