Radio Ninesprings DJ gains national recognition

Nov 16, 2020

An 18-year-old young man from Yeovil who was given his first break into broadcasting on Radio Ninesprings has been shortlisted for a national broadcasting award.

Jake Hunter, a former pupil of Preston School in Yeovil, is one of five nominees to win through to the finals in the ‘Young Person of the Year’ category in the annual Community Media Awards.

Jake was just 17-years–old when he began hosting the daily Drive Show on Radio Ninesprings while studying creative media production at Exeter College.

After two highly successful years, Jake departed from the Yeovil local station in September to work as a Presenter/DJ with a national radio station based in Manchester.

Radio Ninesprings Station Manager, Steve Haigh, said “Not everyone is cut out to work in broadcasting but Jake showed from day one that he had the potential to make it with our listeners. His nomination for this national award reflects well on the quality of the media training that we provide at Radio Ninesprings and everyone at the radio station wishes him continued success with his career.”
