Chrissie was on the radio for over 30 years in Norfolk.
She began as a local club DJ in the county back in the late 70's and worked in a bank and at C & A which provided the funds for the record collection!
Her bosses at Penny's in Norwich and Tiffany's in Great Yarmouth had to provide her with boxes to stand on when she was doing her DJ sets due to her height, but even then, she wanted to move into radio.
When Radio Broadland arrived, Chrissie sent in a demo on a cassette with the words 'Please Hear Me' printed on the envelope - she continued to try every avenue to get on air, but it wasn't until 1986 that she got her first chance.
She continued to do holiday cover at the station and eventually persuaded bosses to give her a trial period which lasted until 1999 when she was partnered with Rob Chandler to present the new Breakfast Show, eventually earning the nickname 'the Posh and Becks of Norfolk'!
The show came to an end in December 2013, but Chrissie moved to BBC Radio Norfolk where she presented the Mid-Morning show every weekday morning from 10am from January 2016 until November 2020, when she retired.
