What did I do? It wasn’t me, I promise!
Don’t worry, I haven’t done anything scandalous, but it seems I have done something of interest to local print and broadcast media.
Which headline do you prefer?
Here I am in this week’s KM Extra (local paper in Kent where I grew up):
And here’s a snippet of an article in this week’s Wokingham Times (local paper where I live now) – full article is on this link. I’m sure the headline in the print version was something like “Nicola’s a natural…” which I thought was kinda nice (it being a natural bodybuilding federation, strictly drug tested and all):
On the back of the latter article, BBC Radio Berkshire got in touch and asked me to be the person their “roving reporter” is with that day. (The reporter happens to be Maggie Philbin – I remember her from “Tomorrow’s World”!)
Apparently there will be short segments with me between 7am and 10am on Monday, at about 00:20 and 00:50 past each hour. The initial email even suggested Maggie might do a bit of training with me – let’s pump some iron, Maggie!
Do you want a press release?
By the way, this all came about because I sent one press release out… Press releases are one of the services I offer my copywriting clients. So, if you’d like a bit of this kind of action, you know where to find me! (Here)
Have you ever been on radio? How do you stop your voice sounding like you’re about four years old? Aaaaand… do you remember Maggie on “Tomorrow’s World”? (How did the theme tune go – that’s going to bug me now…)
