I’ve been broadcasting for two decades. In that time I’ve moved from tape to digital editing and the corn laws have been repealed.
I’ve filled on stage for a delayed Peppa Pig, met childhood hero Basil Brush, and prepared for a Christmas light switch-on in a Nuneaton furniture showroom with the Fast Food Rockers. So yes, radio IS as glamorous as you think.
The time I spoke schoolgirl French to Eric Cantona, ran away from Tony Hadley and asked Michael Heseltine about his hair, must wait for another day, when we’ve got time to talk about it.
I’ve had a variety of roles in radio including Broadcast Journalist, Sports Editor, Researcher and Producer, but the majority of my work has been presenting Breakfast shows, most notably as one half of Jez and Roo.
I am currently at BBC Wiltshire and have worked across the output. Key solo projects include producing and presenting a season of programmes about the arts – reflecting the wealth of talent in Wiltshire across the artistic mediums – and producing the Wiltshire strand of Shakespeare on Tour: a national BBC project to mark the 400 years since the playwright’s death. You can hear some of the pieces I produced (and in some cases presented too) here
