Helen first hit TD1 airwaves as a guest during former presenter Paul Rayner's 32 hour fundraising radiothon in March 2019. Committee members tuning in heard the broadcast and decided to approach Helen to offer her the opportunity to host her own show.
A photographer to trade, Helen hadn't considered presenting on radio until it was suggested to her. However, she is very passionate about music, particularly late 70s/early 80s Post-punk/New wave pioneering synth bands. She has broadcast on live streaming app "Periscope" for over 4 years and performed her own Edinburgh Fringe show incorporating that platform.
Helen joined the team in October 2019 and hosts "Helen's mixtape" fortnightly on a Friday 7pm-10pm GMT.
