Neil Carter comes home for Christmas

Christmas will be all the more special for radio presenter Neil Carter this year, as he’s just moved back to the UK after 11 years on the air around the world with BFBS.

The former BRMB jock, who joined the Forces Broadcaster in 2000, is now taking up a role as a UK-based presented on the network’s DAB station.

Neil’s been on air in ten different BFBS Radio locations in just over a decade – Gibraltar, Germany, Kosovo, Iraq, Cyprus, Canada, the Falklands, Kuwait, Afghanistan and Belize. More recently he spent Christmas and New Year in Afghanistan.

Neil said: “Prior to joining BFBS I hadn’t had much military exposure, however since being away overseas I‘ve had the chance to meet some great people and lots of fellow Brummies. Working closely alongside members of the British Forces across the world gives you an appreciation of how much effort is involved in what they do, simply on a day-to-day basis. With BFBS it’s not just a case of presenting a radio show and going home afterwards, you become part of the community and without BFBS I wouldn’t have had the chance to have done half of the things I’ve done over the last 11 years.”

During his time alongside the British Forces, Neil has completed two marathons in New York, driven along the Ice highways of the Northern territories inside the Arctic Circle, learnt to dive and become a PADI and BSAC instructor. He has also gained his commercial Pilot licence and flown in the UK, Canada, United States and Belize.
