Meet your Mentor
Finney - Radio Mentor
Hey, I'm Finney, I'm 15 and I live in The South-East of the UK. I've been a staff member at upbeat since June last year, and when I'm not on air or doing tasks I'm normally either around in the community or doing some hobbies. I play the keyboard and drums in my spare time, and I've also been working on a model railway. If I'm not cooped up indoors, I enjoy taking walks around my area, with the company of my dog.
I've been a radio mentor here since late August 2020, and I've loved every minute of it. If you're not aware as to what we do as radio mentors, we help presenters with issues, and also set up any new people who come to join the radio team. We also lead a team, and just make sure everything on air is ship-shape and ready to sail.
Here's what his regional manager, Alicia, had to say about him:
Finney is really a true radio mentor here at UpBeat! He works so hard and throughout Christmas he worked so hard too despite it was the Christmas period and that everyone wasn't around much but we could sure count on Finney! He is a real pleasure to work with at UpBeat and we could never be more grateful! Thank you Finney for doing so hard, we are all proud of you!
