For the past few months I’ve been volunteering with FM station Vixen 101, just acting as a reporter, writing news reports and recording packages and interviews.
I signed up with not even the slightest interest in presenting, being a DJ is just not my cup of tea!
I don’t mind my work/me going out on air when I have an editing ‘cushion’- that I can edit out anything that’s gone wrong or anything stupid I’ve said- but live is a different kettle of fish!
Well, today we had a gap in presenters for the weekly news magazine show, so me and someone experienced on driving a desk co-presented.
Well, it only added to my conviction that presenters are born not made!
I fluffed many a line, asked silly questions and just generally messed up everything I said!
It was fun, and I think it went ok, but I think I’ll still be hiding under my editing cushion for a little while yet!
