The team behind Radio Verulam’s ‘St Albans Drive’ programme celebrated their first anniversary on the show on March 15.
Sharing the air over the week with their own daily shows, Gemma Karuthasami, Robbie Dove, Steve Simpson, Michael Pride, Steve Shrimpton and Allan Monteiro all bring their own personalities and character to their programmes which gives listeners a different slant on the day’s topics and guests from the community each weekday.
Andy Waterfield, programme controller for Radio Verulam said: “I decided to try something a little different giving the community a fantastic and energetic local programme with not one but a team of personalities.
“All were new to the radio except for Robbie Dove who has become the team leader. I’m so pleased with the outcome – the team is simply excellent.
“We thing it’s worked really well – it gives each presenter more time to research and plan their show and keeps it all fresh and vibrant.”
Robbie Dove said: “Volunteering on St Albans Drive over the past year has been a breath of fresh air. It’s been a pleasure working alongside a range of people – some of which with previous radio experience, others without – but the common theme for us is professionalism.”
‘St Albans Drive’ airs on 92.6FM and online weekdays from 4pm to 7pm and delivers regular local traffic bulletins and news items as well as guest interviews and a wide range of music.
