Diana has been with Radio Verulam for the last ten years and has presented Out and About for the last four years, alongside Jenny Ford for the last three. I'm sorry to say that they have both decided it is time to move on.
I think everyone will agree that their warmth, energy, and wit has brought Fridays alive on air! Both Diana and Jenny will be welcome back to Radio Verulam at any point - please don't be a stranger to us! Thank you for everything you've done.
I really want Out and About to continue; it's one of our flagships. It's a wonderful opportunity so I'm interested in hearing from people who would be interested in taking it on.
It currently runs as a live programme for most of the year, with breaks around the usual school holiday times. If the right person isn't available to do it live but could commit to a regular recording a day or two ahead, that would be considered.
It works as a single-hander or a double-act. It could also be shared on a rota, but that would need someone to arrange (please don't email saying you want to be part of the rota - instead try to come up with a complete solution).
It does involve getting the guests in and associated research. Apart from that the format is flexible. It's also jolly good fun!
If this is something for you, please email me with your ideas and outline and why you should be our Out and Abouter.
Diana and Jenny finish on December 14 and I'd to get going with the new series in early 2019. Questions, as always, very welcome.
