I’m Abi Gibson, and I am a student radio presenter currently studying BSc Media Production.
I currently present, produce and also am Station Manager at DemonFM – a community and radio station in Leicester.
I’m a South Manchester lass who has always had a passion for creativity – I started out my ventures as trying to become a musical theatre actress, however the cruel world of drama school put me off that dream after 3 years of auditions.
I moved onto radio after coming to study at De Montfort University Leciester and joining the award winning Demon Media. I began my journey as a newsreader, before going onto getting the role of Head of News in my second year. Whilst producing three shows, I found my passion was getting myself in front of microphone and sharing my silly stories and thoughts with an audience.
My passion was driven further during the Student Radio Association Conference in 2017, where I was a podcaster, and also got (essentially) runner up at DemoFactor. I also won Silver for Best Female Presenter at the Student Radio Awards 2017.
I look forward to hopefully having a long career in radio, and am thus determined to make it so!
I hope you enjoy perusing my website, and if you read all of this – thank you very much and I hope you have something really lovely for tea.
