Somer Valley FM
What being a director of Somer Valley FM means to me
I came to North East Somerset in 2008 at the request of the directors to launch and then run Somer Valley FM. Later that year I was asked to join the board.
The directors of Somer Valley FM have ultimate responsibility for running the radio station so as the manager I am the principal link between the board and our operations. I report on our business activity as well as how we deliver local radio with social gain. The board is an excellent resource to the station drawing in expertise from education, business and broadcasting. We are thrilled to have a steer on our development as a cutting edge community broadcaster that is a unique asset to the region. For me, though, ultimate satisfaction comes with seeing, on a daily basis, the difference Somer Valley FM makes to people’s lives. It is the job of the directors to nurture and sustain an environment in which aspirations and ambitions can be achieved. Delivering that is a very exciting role to have.
