OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
Having just marked its second year on air this August, Bauer Media’s dedicated LGBTQ+ station Hits Radio Pride is bringing back its Future Star competition in partnership with EE Full Fibre Broadband to find the next voice in radio.
Once again, the competition will help get a budding presenter’s foot in the door of the radio industry, giving them the chance to present their own show on Hits Radio Pride this December. The winner will follow in the footsteps of Ben Johns, the inaugural Future Star, who nine months on is still on air and presents on the station every weekend.
Ben Johns, Presenter, Hits Radio Pride, said: “Since winning Hits Radio Pride’s Future Star last year I’ve landed my own national radio show and even got to join Jordan Lee and the Hits Radio Pride team at Brighton Pride this summer. It’s been a dream come true and Future Star really helped kickstart my career. I would highly encourage anyone looking to get into radio to apply!”
Simon Greening, Senior Executive Producer, Hits Radio, added: “We’re so excited to launch Future Star again – I’ve in fact already had people messaging me asking if the campaign was coming back! Huge thanks to EE who are helping us to make this all possible; we can’t wait to see everyone’s submissions soon and find the next person to join us on Hits Radio Pride.”
Applications for Hits Radio Pride Future Star are now open and close on Wednesday 19th October. Applicants are invited to send in a short video, please find more information on hitsradiopride.co.uk.
