Nick lands BBC radio job

Nick Rotherham

Level 3 student Nick Rotherham so impressed BBC Radio Humberside bosses on a work placement that they offered him a regular job.

The 20-year-old was headhunted by the radio station when a vacancy came up on its Sunday sports programme.

Nick spent time at the station on a placement last summer.

He is now heard by Radio Humberside listeners every Sunday where he compiles and presents bulletins within the Sunday sport programme.

Nick said "I was very nervous the first time I went on air. My heart was pounding and hands were shaking! But the more times I do it the more relaxed I become.

“This is a great opportunity for me; sport is my passion so I’m thrilled to get my foot in the door.”
