Following the success of the Ramble, which launched in 2007, Luke has since co-founded ‘Radio Stakhanov’, a podcast production company and publisher which has recently topped the Itunes podcast charts with ‘JaackMaate’s Happy Hour’ & ‘Berkhamsted Revisited’. Luke is also a regular part of TalkSport’s ‘Season Ticket’, as well as occasionally appearing in other programmes in their schedule.

Following her graduation from Southampton Solent University in 2014, Naomi has worked at a number of radio organisations including Transmission Roundhouse, Celador, Kiss & her present employer Virgin Radio. For the SRA Naomi has been an active member for over 4 years, taking on the role of the South East Regional Officer & Marketing Officer before becoming Chair in 2017.  

-       Dr Lawrie Hallett, Senior Lecturer in Radio at the University of Bedfordshire. Lawrie worked as a producer and presenter on stations in the UK and Europe, before becoming a broadcast consultant specialising in technology and community-based broadcasting. Prior to working at the University of Bedfordshire, Lawrie was part of Ofcom's Radio Team where I developed and implemented policies around community radio and digital audio broadcasting in particular. He has also operated an Ofcom Small-Scale DAB Trial in Norwich since September 2015.
