Holly began volunteering at Tameside Radio in 2012 to learn about how shows were put together but after a couple of weeks, she was offered a practice hour slot, presenting, on a Monday morning 3-4am. Later that year she took over the Monday evening and Tuesday morning slot 11pm - 1am and continues to love every minute.
The thought of presenting was something Holly cowered away from and figured would definitely not be for her when she first started at Tameside, but when given the opportunity of her first show she began seeing it differently. At first, Holly was so worried about sounding perfect and worrying about making a mistake etc. and although she still gets like that now, she started to realise it's also something so much more to her. Knowing there's a possibility she's entertaining others or putting a smile on their face at the end of a really long day means everything because she loves making people happy.
In her spare time she enjoys taking part in productions at Droyslden Little Theatre and is fixated with anything Disney character or puppet related. Especially Sesame Street!
Join me every Monday evening and Tuesday morning for 'Holly in the Midnight Hours' 11pm-1am.
