Lights, Camera, Action!
Fame at last, as Radio Glan Clwyd is featured on the ITV Wales News
On Monday 12 September 2016, Radio Glan Clwyd received a visit from ITV Wales reporter Rob Shelley and cameraman Malcolm. They had been invited to the studio in order to interview member Brenda Jones and promote the fact that our radio station is celebrating it’s 40th anniversary this month.
As Brenda went on air just after 10am, reporter Rob bounced into the studio. Brenda introduced him as the ‘man of the moment’, and he went on to ask Brenda the one question that a man should never ask a woman… And Brenda revealed that at the age of 83, she has been on air now since the year 2000 and is still ‘raring to go’.
Later in the morning, reporter Rob and cameraman Malcolm undertook a tour of Glan Clwyd Hospital. They caught up with Radio Glan Clwyd members Lesley and Eugene who were visiting the wards and collecting requests at the time. They told Rob all about how important the radio station was to the patients, and what a privilege it was to work alongside the dedicated staff and other voluntary groups at Glan Clwyd Hospital.
The report was shown on both the early evening and late night bulletins of the ITV Wales News on Monday 12 September. You can see the story and clip by clicking here.
Presenter Brenda can be heard on air every Wednesday between 10 and 12noon with the ‘Sunshine Hours Show’. Eugene Carey (far left) is on air every Tuesday from 3.30-5.30pm. Member Lesley (far right) works hard on the committee and can usually be found talking to patients, collecting requests, and visiting the wards.
A great day was had by all. Fame at last for Radio Glan Clwyd members – and what a great way of celebrating 40 years of broadcasting!
