Joanne Schofield – Station Manager & Licensee
Welcome to Worthy FM.
I started my radio career at Glastonbury Festival in 2004, wrote the application for the first permanent full time community radio station in Bristol, BCFM with two colleagues, which went on air in 2007 and is still going strong today. I spent five years being responsible for everything from programming, training, production, volunteer outreach, fund raising and of course fun.
I have also produced and presented a weekly live 3 hour show on local Commercial radio, followed by producing and presenting for Local BBC Radio Bristol and in 2012 was one of a team of 12 producers for the Sony Radio Academy bronze award-winning programme, The Listening Project for Radio 4. I still produce radio programmes independently and have been with the festival radio station since 2004.
Because this is where I started, it’s important that every year students and others who are enthusiastic and passionate about radio also get that opportunity to experience probably the best little radio station in the world!
