Bobby Gee, former station manager and presenter of Reading’s Blast 1386 has landed a new job on Island 88.6 FM in Zakynthos, Greece, presenting the breakfast show for the summer season.
Island 88.6 FM is an English-speaking radio station that launched in June 2005. It broadcasts from the island, which has a permanent British population of approximately 3,500 and over 450,000 British visitors each year during the summer. The station has generated plenty of interest and positive feedback from its listeners, who are predominantly British; although the variety of music attracts listeners of all nationalities.
The station website is under development, and will feature a live stream to enable it to be heard anywhere in the world. This Anglo-Greek station is unique, and so it?s expected to attract a wide English-speaking audience on the net, in Greece and beyond.
Bob Goertz said: “I feel excited – venturing into something new – especially with it being World Cup year. I would like to thank Island FM in Zakynthos for offering me the job, presenting their English language summer breakfast show. I’m currently looking for show sponsors and this is an ideal opportunity to reach an untapped consumer source. This appointment will add to my radio experience and I’m looking to rejoin mainstream radio in the UK on my return. I’m looking to take my experience to school, college, university and community radios, where maintaining quality programming is the biggest challenge and also in a local station, where my on-air talent and experience can be used. Some stations need a warm friendly on-air voice and a very capable presenter…. so who knows what comes next.”
