The World Service

I worked as a freelancer on shows on BBC World Service such as Outside Source, World Have Your Say and Newsday, which are well respected radio programmes broadcasting to listeners worldwide. Working on some of these programmes entailed working bizarre hours, mainly due to the fact that we would be speaking to countries with different time zones. Working in international news is such an exciting experience like no other.

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.
