Jeremy Buxton

Jeremy knew that he wanted to work in radio from a very young age. He got his first true taste for radio when he was 11.

He wrote to a popular 1980s Saturday night BBC TV show that made dreams come true – but his letter never made it to the programme’s production office. Instead, it somehow ended up in the mailbag of the BBC’s Network Radio Editor David Hatch who thought it was a great idea and put the wheels in motion.

Jeremy became a national radio presenter for the day, and hijacked Gloria Hunniford’s programme on BBC Radio 2.

He loved the experience, after all how many eleven year olds get to present their own show on national radio?

Jeremy went to University in Leeds and has a degree in Media and French. As part of his degree, he studied at Angers University in the Loire Valley in France.

He also spent a year as an English teacher in the foothills of the Pyrenees, where he learnt to ski for free!

When he’s not at work, Jeremy enjoys spending time with his family, travelling, and listening to music!
