Public Relations Director :- firstname.lastname@example.org
Joined Radio City in Oct 2007 and very shortly after took on the role as Public Relations Director in Jan 2008, qualified as a broadcaster in June 2008 also holds a position of Trustee.
My first exciting role as Public Relations Director was to help organise Radio City’s 40th Anniversary celebration in April 2008, by organising dignitaries e.g. Edwina Hart, the Lord Mayor, Lord left Lieutenant, High Sheriff, the Chairman of the ABMBU, Hospital Management and other guests, including managing the press, media and tv cameras to the studio.
Another milestone for Radio City was going onto AM and Radio City became 1386am in 2012, which meant we could be heard on a radio in an around the hospital grounds. We also can be heard on TuneIn and via our Radio City App and have listeners from all around the world. The founder of Radio City Clive Thomas made a very special journey despite battling cancer and did the first live 1386am programme followed by myself.
In 2009 I organised the first of many dinner dances to recognise and award members of Radio City that have contributed the most to the station. A very special evening for our members and was delighted to be presented with an award myself in 2011.
As part of my role I have had the privilege in attending many special events e.g. Lord Mayor’s Inauguration and evening ball and met special guests such as Simon Weston. Also with the help of the MS Society organised a joint fashion show attended by the Mayor of Gorseinon and Miss Wales.
As part of my role I have organised and arranged radio interviews with organisations such as the RNLI, Air Ambulance, Mountain Rescue, Blood bikes, Tenovus Cancer Choir, The MS Society and supporting the recruiting of Magistrates.
I have also supported and taken part in several walks to help charities such as Race for life, Midnight walks to help raise money to fund trips abroad for terminally sick children and their families, also supported the Memory Walk and raising awareness of dementia.
Since 2008 Our sports team have covered the Rugby, Ospreys fixtures and all Swansea City FC home matches from the Liberty Stadium broadcasting from the stadium to the hospital. The service is provided to the visually impaired within the stadium as well as the listeners on 1386am and online, I support the team as a technical operator.
First ever Radio programme to present was Monday Madness the Jo & Liz show, catching up with the weeks gossip and lots of fun, with great music.
I feel very privileged to have been given the opportunity to belong to such a rewarding organisation with some great members the best job ever and look forward to many more years with the service.
