has travelled half way round the country furthering her career
in broadcasting. She was one of a team from Nottingham University
to set up a student radio station and went on to win a number
of Radio One Student Radio Awards.
Helen's passion for the airwaves continued
as she went onto become a member of the team at BBC Radio
Nottingham whilst completing her finals. Her hardwork paid
off and Helen went onto to become a Broadcast Assistant at
Whilst working in Englands biggest country
Helen managed to grab a taste of almost all the different
roles on station. There were plenty of challenges including
scaling Britains three highest mountains in one weekend, travelling
to New York with a group of students and even delivering a
cow. The farmer christened her Helen the Heffer.
In the year 2000 Helen went south to Grimsby
and joined the BBC Radio Humberside Breakfast Show. The next
two years were no holiday either. Helen, who has now got a
bit of reputation as a daredevil, scaled a rollercoaster in
February winds, swam 7 miles round the county for a children's
Hospice, ran the Lincolnshire 10K and cracked the knack of
going to sleep in the afternoon!
Helen then swapped early mornings for late
evenings after becoming the new face of the 1025 news for
Look North in East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Helen now works
as a VJ and Presenter on the new Look North programme. She
says the mixture of reporting, filming, editing and presenting
keeps her on her toes!
