National success for University of Chester Radio student

Richard Wolfenden has been presenting on Radio X over Christmas. It means that the 26-year-old from Liverpool will be presenting alongside the likes of Chris Moyles and Johnny Vaughan. 

Richard, who has just completed an MA in Radio Production based at the Warrington Campus, said: “I am obviously buzzing! It’s completely insane that I’m going to be on air, on my favourite radio station, playing just my kind of music. Even if the hours look absolutely brutal, I’m over the moon!

In November, Richard attended the coveted Student Radio Awards and picked up the Gold award for Student Radio Chart show, for which he was one of the presenters.

During his time at University, Richard presented a sports show on the Campus station, The Cat Radio, and he did an outside broadcast from Chester FC.

Radio Production Programme Leader, Michelle Ponting, said: “I am absolutely delighted for Richard. He’s worked really hard over the past year. I’m not surprised he’s been given this opportunity. He sounds great on air and will be a talent to keep an eye on.
