Head of Training, Insanity Radio 103.2FM

Almost three months ago, Insanity Radio held its annual elections, at which the new board for 2016/17 was decided. After much deliberation I ran for the position of Head of Training and was duly elected.

My main responsibilities are training and organising pre-recorded and holiday content, which includes the summer schedule that begins tomorrow! My handover period has therefore been pretty hectic, with multiple spreadsheets and emails designed to organise the lives of the many presenters and a few concerned conversations about stress levels. However, being busy is what I like and I am so excited to see what is in store for the next year with a fantastic board.

It’s weird to think that a conversation with the lovely Charlotte Mason, now Station Manager, who I barely knew at the time, and Ceri-Ann (my predecessor) in a toilet at the union bar when we were celebrating the 4th anniversary of Insanity going FM has now become a reality but I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Being on the board also means I am obliged to, nay want to, get involved in various other roles like helping with the stall at the Magna Carta Festival yesterday on Egham High Street (pictured) and going to socials (the first of which featured my first ride in an Uber). Most importantly, I get to share the wonders of Insanity with others and help make the station the best it can be!


A return to the Orbital Board

Last Monday saw the results of the Orbital Board applications released to the candidates and I am ecstatic to announce that I will be the Deputy Arts Editor for the Orbital Magazine for the next academic year! It’s not been the simplest journey to this position, as you will know if you read my earlier post about last year’s Orbital board, but I am so excited to start afresh and work with my fellow board members, especially Joanne the Arts Editor – coincidentally she is the person I ended up sat next to at the information evening about applying to join the board way back at the beginning of March! Now that exams are out of the way I’m really enthusiastic┬áto get started on making the Arts section the best it can be.
