“Belinda is a brilliant broadcaster” Mark Grinnell, Managing Editor, BBC Radio Devon
More than 20 years’ experience in radio journalism (18 within the BBC), has seen me develop a presentation style that balances authority with warmth – I’m equally comfortable challenging politicians and chatting with Phone-In callers.
Roles at BBC Radio Devon have included eight years presenting its flagship breakfast programmes – testing formats both technically and in terms of content. These shows require intense concentration; rock-steady journalistic judgement and an ability to connect (both with listeners and interviewees). Plus the knack of knowing when to challenge, and how hard.
I also specialise in news reading, creative programme treatments and crafting evocative features.
