My work as a journalist has developed into social commentating in recent years and thanks to my strong opinions (and cheek!) I am often asked to speak on a wide variety of subjects – the hot news topic of the day here and abroad, debates about trends, human interest news stories and of course, culture/celebrity and life/style…. even football.
While I have interviewed many very high profile individuals/celebrities over the years and naturally love talking on the funnier and lighter side of life, I actually talk about some pretty serious topics too.
Discussions/phone-ins on national radio and TV have included: sex discrimination, PTSD, bereavement (I was widowed several years ago), health issues (I was diagnosed with a severe auto-immune condition in my late teens) and I am also often called to talk about the British media and press (I’ve always got an opinion on that…)
I studied politics at university and it remains a passion. My other key area of social commentating is reviewing the news for top radio and TV news channels. Having worked for both the tabloids and broadsheets I understand newsroom culture and love a great headline or juicy story that’s got the whole nation up in arms.
