Breakfast Presenter and Head of Marketing at 102.5 The 'Bridge
Media Production | Dudley, United Kingdom, GB
I'm a passionate and competent individual who is happy working alone or in a team. I love what I do, and have a good knowledge of Microsoft and Mac software, along with Adobe Audition and computer playout software in broadcast situations, such as Myriad.
I worked in customer service for JD Sports for a little over 6 years, progressing quickly from a sales role to a junior management position and often running the store in the absence of the manager. Focussing strongly on working with people and delivering exceptional customer service I managed a variety of departments and used EPOS systems daily. I was a key holder and was part of a management team that made the store consistently one of the top 50 in a 500 property company.
I’ve been at 102.5 The Bridge for just over 12 months, progressing through the ranks to hosting my own shows within a few weeks. Coupling this with my work as Assistant Station Manager at Scratch Radio has helped me gain solid experience.
I'm developing my skills to become a cross platform worker, gaining experience in photography and basic web design. I'm also responsible for the social media and website management of a variety of entities ranging from an arts festival through to a functioning FM radio station.
I presented on Shine Radio which was a project for the Post Graduate Journalism students at the University. I prepared, presented and produced (and other things starting with p!) my own 3 hour show, five days a week for two weeks.
As well as spending time as a broadcast assistant with the BBC, I have worked for Smooth Radio West Midlands on their Street Team, and along with my colleagues we’ve received huge amounts of praise from both the station staff and the clients who had Smooth at their events.
