Reporter Profiles

Tulip Mazumdar

Tulip Mazumdar


What were you doing before you were at Radio 1?
Journalist at Radio 1's sister station 1Xtra and before that at BBC Radio Mersyside.

Best part of the job?
The fact you have no idea what you'll be doing when you come in in the morning. You could be sent anywhere in the world!

Worst on air moment?
When I foolishly decided to take part in a TV dating show for a laugh. It was wrong.  I know that now.

Advice on anyone who wants to get started in journalism:
Approach the paper/ programme you want to work for with lots to say about what they do. What you love about it and what you think they could do differently. It's a cliche, but take those phone answering and tea making jobs, that's how I first got into the BBC.

What's on your walls at home?
Photos taken by my ever so artistic mate.

If you could be famous, what would you be famous for?
For being the heiress to a huge international hotel chain and dressing my small dog in pink diamante cardigans.

My top albums ever are:
Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream 
Nitin Sawhney - Beyond Skin
2 Many DJs - As Heard On Radio Soulwax Part 2

Who's your favourite news reporter and why?
Andrew Marr. He's a giant amongst men. Closely followed by Michael Buerk. He was on the news all the time when I was a kid, I got to meet him a few months back and I was proper starstruck.

I spend my time off...
Knitting pink diamante cardigans.
