Live Radio Producing

I spent two years working at Virgin Radio UK (2016 -2018), predominately as Assistant Producer on Edith Bowman’s Breakfast Show and the Evening Show presented by Tim Cocker. During my tenure, I booked guests for the programmes, created original online content for social media and developed content ideas for on air.

Over the last two years, I’ve also freelanced as Assistant Producer at speech network LBC. I also frequently work as Assistant Producer and Broadcast Journalist at BBC Radio London and Social Media Producer for Radio 4’s Any Answers programme.
