Tell us a bit about yourself and your job
I’m in charge of the Midlands news team for Global. We do all the news for Heart, Capital and Smooth radio across the region. We have local shows broadcasting from Brindleyplace across the day.
What does a normal working day look like for you?
My team meet to discuss the day’s news and what stories we’re planning to cover. I’ll then supervise my reporters out and about and make sure the bulletin team are ok. I sometimes have to read the news myself depending on the day and how busy it is! My news team work out of the building every day – including the weekend!
How do you travel to the office?
I either drive or walk, depending on the weather!
How do you find your commute and getting to Eleven Brindleyplace?
Usually good to drive – unless Grosvenor Street West is closed AGAIN! Walking is also lovely, I come in along the canal.
Where are your favourite places in Brindleyplace?
Rudy’s is my favourite place for dinner, and I also love Yorks at Ikon for coffee/brunch. Brindleyplace is also a great place to bring friends with kids, with Seaflife and Legoland so close together!
What’s your favourite place in Birmingham?
Edgbaston Reservoir – I live nearby, and it’s a beautiful slice of nature in the middle of the city.
What do you like about being based at Eleven Brindleyplace?
The view from the 8th floor! It’s so conveniently located for everything, too.
