Radio.

Mat - Time FMI have worked professionally in the broadcast industry, having worked in local commercial radio for a number of years working primarily in Production, Presentation and Programming. despite not working in broadcast full time anymore, I am still passionate about radio and like to keep updated with what’s going on in the industry

Production & Presentation. 

Commercial Radio:

Former presenter at Time 107.5 Weekday Afternoon Show from 2:00pm across East London & West Essex. The show was regularly sponsored and featured a number of interactive features;

  •  Afternoon Delights: Relaxing songs that go with that ‘compulsory’ tea break at 2:30 in the afternoon. (It’s a bit like diving into the biscuit tin and finding the last chocolate digestive and eating it with pure delight).
  • 80s Vs 90s:  Two songs go head to head, listeners asked to vote for their ‘All Time Favourite’ with the winning song played.
  • School Run; We play some of the cooler and newer songs while the kids are in the car with the parents…(Let’s be honest, parents only ‘Like’ new music, just because they think they are young – Parents, don’t embarrass the kids but ‘busting moves’ in front of their mates)

Plus I have confidently covered a variety of shows from Breakfast, Drive & Daytime.  I have covered specialist shows including Rock, Sport, Chart and Soul & Dance. I am also fully proficient in Live and Voice Tracked presentation

I produced Eric Hall’s Making Memories show on Time 107.5, Which consisted of ‘oldies’ music format with the celebrity guest interviews, taking callers to air, while driving the programme. ensuring all timings were met.

I have also helped in the audio production of numerous commercials, competitions and promotions, Including being the voice artist for promotions for other stations in the LycaMediaII Group.

 

Other Platforms:

Internet Radio: I was a producer & cover presenter for Decades Radio until the station removed all on-air staff.

Hospital Radio: I am still actively involved with my local station Bedrock, and have overseen studio rebuilds, a merger with Goodmayes Hospital Radio & do the majority of scheduling and production duties.

Here’s my demo;

Programming.

At Time 107.5 I assisted in scheduling of Music and integration of Advert Logs using RCS Zetta, Selector and Linker

For Bedrock (Hospital Radio) I oversee the entirety of scheduling of the three radio services, using Broadcast Radio (PSquared) Myriad V4 suite (Plus a beta tester for V5).

Live work.

Occasionally I have hosted Outside Broadcasts & Public Address, gathered Vox Pop’s and Interviewed people for Commercial & Hospital Radio (Some locations have requested to book me for their events). 

Online & Branding

I’m alright at WordPress helping a few people, companies and charities set their sits up, some of which I still maintain; see WEBSITES

I understand and use social media platforms Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, SnapChat and the concept of using #’s responsibly.

I have understanding of brand awareness and can suggest ideas to develop ideas.

I’m a team player that can also work solo if required.
