Hear our stadium announcer on Radio Bristol
Rovers fans may hear a familiar voice on BBC Radio Bristol from this Thursday night.
Nick Day, our Matchday Stadium Announcer has started work with the radio station following a number of appearances on the daily breakfast show as well as other programs across the station’s output.
Working as a Freelance Broadcast Assistant, Nick will be alongside Trevor Fry this Thursday on the late show which is broadcast across Bristol, Somerset, Wiltshire & Gloucestershire.
“It’s a great opportunity,” said Nick. “I have been reviewing the newspapers every Friday morning on the BBC Radio Bristol Breakfast Show for the last couple of years. Last year I was invited to join a fast track radio presenting course at the BBC which trained me in all aspects of radio production, from driving the desk to interviewing and editing.”
Nick will start at the station on Trevor’s show, which runs every weeknight from 10pm until 1am. “It’s local radio at its very best and a great best place to ‘cut my teeth’,” explained Day, who has been the Man on the Mic at Rovers since 1996.
“Trevor has been on local radio since God’s Dog was a Puppy and he has a loyal band of dedicated listeners. It will be a real pleasure to work alongside someone who makes local radio seem so easy.”
