My BBC journey began in September 2014 – with a grad scheme for 12 months that I was fortunate enough to bag after one of the best interviews I’ve ever had. I learned the ins and outs out of radio, worked with one of the most hard-working and charismatic presenters and broadcasters, from music radio to radio documentaries, to current affairs radio, and more.
