knew a career in showbiz was beckoning when, from the age of
four, she began entertaining her family on long car journeys
with 'Radio Bernie'.
Our very own version of Radio Bernie can be heard on BBC Hereford
and Worcester every Saturday between 12 and 2pm with The Referendum.
This is the programme where you really do have the chance to
have your say on the topic of the week by calling 0845 300 8181.
Bernie read music at the University of Surrey and plays the
piano, guitar, violin, viola and can sing as well!
After being trained as a BBC reporter in 1988, she enjoyed spells
at BBC Radio Derby, York, Cornwall and Ulster before landing
a job here at BBC Hereford and Worcester.
She's also been a presenter on BBC Midlands Today and has worked
with our colleagues at Pebble Mill since 1990.
Bernie has a daughter called Grace, a son called Matthew and
she's married to cricket correspondent, Clive Eakin - a relationship
that blossomed in the early days of BBC Hereford & Worcester.
Bernie's ambitions are to go shopping alone, to have a bath
lasting half an hour with no interruptions, to be able to afford
a full-time ironing lady, and to read something other than Mr
Tickle and Postman Pat!
