BBC Introducing Presenter and BBC 6 Music Producer

In This Episode

We chat to the charismatic BBC radio presenter Abbie McCarthy about all things radio, BBC Introducing, discovering new music (Slaves in particular) and how she is on track to find her place at BBC Radio 1.

From student radio and hospital radio, through to her position now working at BBC Radio 1, most recently covering Huw Stephens on his BBC Radio 1 evening show.

We hear stories of how tenacity and perseverance can get us to where we want to be, and how rejection happens to the best of us. Simply, do what you gotta do and do not quit.

We learn the ins and outs of BBC Introducing, Abbie’s vision for the show and how you can help make radio work to your advantage, right from inside the music industry.
