Tributes paid to radio journalist Emily Bull

KLFM journalist and former Star Cambridge News Editor Emily Bull has passed away after a short battle with Cancer.

Both stations have paid tribute to the IRN Newsreader of the Year Runner Up, as have friends and colleagues on social media, including Sky News’ Kay Burley.

Star Radio Cambridge will be paying tribute to Emily on-air at 8am Friday. The station writes: “We miss her voice bringing us the news, and miss her sparkling wit, and razor sharp personality in our lives. We are sure that all Star Radio listeners will join us in sending love and wishes to her family at this incredibly sad time” on Facebook.

Emily’s husband and family have set up a memorial fund in her memory in aid of McMillan. Her funeral will be held on August 5th at 11am, at Peterborough Crematorium.

Earlier this year, Emily was appointed as Community Editor at KLFM, enabling the station to work closer with local charities and not-for-profit organisations. At the time, she said: “KLFM’s Cash In the Community will bridge that gap and really help to make this part of the world a better place.”

Her recent tweets talk about her being in hospital, followed by a message saying how wonderful it was to wake up in her own bed in her own house.

She took a break from work in May ‘for the summer’ with the aim of returning to work, but was diagnosed shortly afterwards.

Darren Taylor, KLFM’s Managing Director told the Eastern Daily Press: “The team at KL.FM are deeply saddened at the news of the sudden death of our friend and former colleague Emily Bull.

“Emily joined KL.FM in 2013 from BBC radio and quickly established herself as one of the most popular and distinctive voices on the station. She had a great skill at being able to inject her personality into news bulletins.

“Her voice had a deeply rich sound, while her in-depth understanding of west Norfolk and the people that live here allowed her to connect with listeners on a personal level.

“Emily had the gravitas to deliver incredibly emotive stories but then seconds later she could make listeners laugh by delivering a deadpan one liner.

“In January of this year Emily was runner-up as IRN Newsreader of the Year…an accolade that was richly deserved.

“She will be sadly missed by all of us.”
