I’ve been working on local radio for the past 14 years. In that time, we’ve had many snow days. For me, this is where local radio comes into its own and will always win over the bigger stations.

On a daily basis, your local radio station is in touch with the area that you live in. The presenters have access to information which affects your life. They can react to situations instantly and bring you the very latest information that affects you. This is something that regional and national stations just cannot do in the same way.

The Beast from the East has already caused dangerous low temperatures. With the likelihood of snow in parts of Wales over the next few days, one of the best sources of information to keep safe and on the move will be your local radio station.

You can hear me on across Wales on Bridge FM Radio, Swansea Bay Radio, Radio Carmarthenshire, Radio Pembrokeshire & Radio Ceredigion with the latest local information for each station area weekdays between 3pm & 7pm. Plus, I’ll play you some good tunes!

Stay safe and keep warm.
