About me

Helloo there! My name is Emily, I love gigs, and I thrilled to be a part of the wonderful Pretend team.

Having previously been based in my favourite city of them all, Leeds, I have recently relocated to Nottingham to study a masters in Broadcast Journalism and pursue my dream of becoming a radio extraordinaire.

For two and a half years during my time in Leeds, LSR (Leeds Student Radio) was my life. I presented and produced several different shows of a whole variety of themes and genres, one of which was nominated for the award of Best Speech Show. It wasn’t until my final year that I eventually faced the music (sorry) and joined the Live and Local team, where I fell in love with music journalism. Over that year I conducted and edited several interviews, went to countess gigs, wrote reviews for The State of the Arts, curated and promoted a charity gig and was nominated for yet another award (Best Specialist Music) with my wonderful team.

Over this next year of being based in Nottingham, I intend to bring you the wonderful music and creative things this bustling city has to offer, all with the fancy technological/broadcasting skills I shall acquire along the way with my course. Whilst I may still pine for Leeds, being staggering distance from Rock City is a complete and utter blessing.
