Sunday Breakfast 08.00 – 10.00

Benjamin grew up in South East London with the sounds of the radio always on in the background. A frequent interactor with his favourite shows, Benjamin finally took the plunge when he joined the University of Sussex in 2010, deciding to get involved with the student station there, URF.

Starting out by presenting on a Friday lunchtime and contributing to the station’s music team, Benjamin became the Head of Music for 2011. During his time on the committee, the station went through a successful rebrand and relaunch, including the brand new URF Breakfast Show, for which Benjamin was a co-presenter on Thursday mornings (although at 10-12; it was aimed at students, after all).

Taking a break from the business after he graduated, Benjamin is delighted to be joining the wonderful team at Meridian Radio, where his in-depth knowledge and light-hearted look at music both new and old can be heard on Sunday Mornings. Accompanied by an irresistible musical mix of old favourites, hidden gems, guilty pleasure and some of the most exhilarating new tracks around, Benjamin hopes you’ll have as much fun listening as he’s having in the studio.
