Jacqui joined the Apple FM team as a trainee with Luke Knight in December 2015, with no broadcasting experience. Her career path had been in nursing up until 2010 when she left to work for her husband’s business.
Jacqui said “I felt I wanted to contribute to the community in a voluntary capacity, I wanted to be involved in something lively and my ‘light bulb moment’ came up with community radio. I am a lover of easy, fun and energetic music. I now present my own show ‘Slip into Sunday’ from 8am to 10am – playing smooth music to put you in a mellow Sunday mood, interspersed with some lively numbers just to wake you up. I love being part of the Apple FM crew”.
Jacqui is also a volunteer with her little dog Livvie at Musgrove Park as part of the Pets as Therapy team visiting the wards. She is also part of the new Apple FM Community Matters team which is currently being formed.
