Helen Philpot

Helen PhilpotHelen 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 Radio York

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!
