BioI stumbled into radio when a friend commented on what he called 'my great voice' (and the fact that I can talk for Britain and beyond) he also thought that I was funny and would be great on air. I gave it a try, was liked, and found out that I had found my niche I LOVED IT; I got to talk to myself for hours without people thinking I was mad.
I have worked on stations such as LWR, Urban Fresh, Rhythm and Hcity Radio where I presented shows 5 or 6 days a week as a volunteer for over 6 years, why you ask did I tell you that I LOVED radio.
After excelling in 2 radio courses I landed a placement on Choice FM as a journalist which was just before I moved on to working with the Community Station hcity as the station manager as well as daytime presenter. I have interviewed singers Mario, B2K and Misteeq et al. Other interviews varied from actor Colin Salmon to politician Ian Duncan-Smith. And now LADIES AND GENTLEMEN I am with Colourful. Are you ready for the ride?
Since being on Colourful I have interviewed artist such as Stephen 'Ragga' Marley, MC Aggro, Mica Paris, Shaggy, Keisha White, De Indispensables, Ashley 'Asher D' Walters, Angel, Safronya, Plan B, Ruby Turner, Boulavard, Ann Nesby, E-Dro, Glideascope, Simon Webbe, Hydro, Shaila Prospere, Rudi Lickwood, Shredda, The Dualers, Nathan, Sisqo (Dru Hill), F.A.T, The Bamaz, The A'Jay Brothers, De-A-Co, and many many MANY more: the list is endless and there is STILL many more to come so don't miss out keep it logged. A big thank you to all who have passed through Colourful and to Suzy, Chelcie and Leon.
As well as being a long serving member of the Colourful Radio team and appearing in numerous roles within TV and film, Julie Ann is an award winning presenter, having won BEFFTA 'Radio Personality of the Year' 2012.
