Sunshine Radio is handing broadcasting debuts to two journalism graduates from the University of Gloucestershire this week.
Zasha Whiteway-Wilkinson and Beth Cox will be reading the Breakfast and Drive bulletins until Friday, while Head Of News Shaun Moore takes a week off.
Sunshine Radio Group Programme Controller Shaun Tilley told RadioToday: “As somebody who was hugely appreciative to get a break in the industry at the age of 16, I understand just how difficult it is to get a foot in the door. These days, it’s arguably more competitive than ever so I’m delighted that we’re able to give Zasha and Beth this chance as it’s very important we nurture up and coming talent here.
“They have great potential and I’m looking forward to working with them both. Zasha is a Hereford girl and I know how proud she is to be broadcasting on her local station”.
Sunshine Radio broadcasts to Herefordshire, Monmouthshire, Shropshire and Worcestershire.
