In November I was fortunate to meet the BBC broadcaster, Dotun Adebayo at the Student Radio Awards. He was kind enough to invite me to visit Radio 5 Live in Salford and let me shadow him on his programme, ‘Up All Night’.
I have been listening to BBC Radio 5 Live my whole life thanks to my parents having it on in the house. Being a listener of mainly talk radio, Up All Night has always been one of my favourites so this opportunity was a real honour.
Meeting Dotun and experiencing the incredible level of work and production that goes into BBC Radio programmes was inspiring, in one evening at the studios, I learnt a great deal about the industry and BBC Radio itself.
