Charlene loves talking and it’s no surprise that she’s ended up on the wireless. Her love for radio began at the tender age of seven and after graduating from the University of Westminster armed with a radio degree, she joined BFBS in 2004 as a trainee presenter.
After clocking up some mileage with BFBS presenting shows from Gibraltar, Germany, Falklands and the Balkans she’s now in Cyprus doing DJ in the sun. This Bournemouth Bird’s bringing a lot of pink action, chocolate and randomness to the beach.
Memorable Radio Moments
Asking Hard Fi about the 'Loo situation' at the Hurricane Festival in Germany, getting Jean-Christophe Novelli to eat some of her Nigella Brownies, running a half marathon and doing a parachute jump with a microphone.
Worst Radio Moment
Losing a hairgrip inside the mic fader live on air, presenting the Breakfast Show in PJ’s after waking up late, getting caught singing when she thought the ’Mic live’ light was off.
Ultimate Radio Ambition
To sing (well attempt) a duet with Elton John
