Any advice about moving forward in radio?

Hello all

I came here a few years ago for advice and it got my career forward so I'm here once again!

I have been a travel reporter for Radio Jackie in Surrey and am currently a broadcast journalist for them.

I'm trying to get more work as I'd like to be able to make a living from my job but I'm finding it so hard just sending speculative e-mails and either getting ignored or turned down.

Does anyone have any advice that could help?

Many thanks

You're certainly in an ideal location. If you want to be anywhere, near to London or Manchester are it.

The best advice is KEEP going with speculative emails etc because one day you will get that reply you've been wanting. The bottom line is never give up and good luck :)

Be indispensable where you are.... make connections.... know where you want to be and talk to the people who are there!
