I have met Daniele a couple of times and can say that he is both friendly and approachable and he also seems to be very professional too.
Daniele is the third station manager since it was established a decade ago. He takes control of managing the output of the station, which has 42,000 regular listeners, as well as being responsible for the recruitment of new volunteers and the development of marketing and funding strategies.
The 30-year-old moved to the UK from his native Italy in 2009, where he started his radio career as a volunteer in 2004, and most recently worked as a producer for talkSPORT International in London for two years.
Daniele said: “We will definitely keep the commitment to music being played that is an alternative to the commercial radio stations. I think a community radio station, as the name says, is for the community and has to reflect the different parts of the community and the different sides of society.”
Daniel Childerhouse, chief executive officer of Future Projects, the charity of which Future Radio is one part, said: “We were extremely pleased to have attracted such a high-quality candidate. Daniele is absolutely the right person to take the station forward and ensure that it continues to have a very positive impact on the communities of Norwich and beyond.”
Future Radio is a full-time community radio station and welcomes volunteers and input from the public. Many of the programmes are produced and presented by volunteers, so if you have an idea, get in touch. If you haven't listened before, you can find the station at 108.7FM or www.futureradio.co.uk where you can listen live or listen to podcasts of selected shows
