I am reporter and newsreader at Lincs FM, Compass FM and Rutland Radio. My job involves finding good stories as well as interviewing interesting people. Then there’s the writing, editing and sitting in a studio behind a microphone.
In addition I have experience of working on various publications and I’m always interested in finding good stories and interviewing interesting people. I’ve also worked on social media projects developing audiences for a variety of platforms.
