Below are the contact details for the different members of the Leeds Student Radio Committee

 

Emma Rice

Station Manager

Emma Rice

Hi, I’m Emma, LSR’s Station Manager. After having been heavily involved with LSR throughout University I jumped at the chance to lead the station into a new year of exciting developments. My influence over the station has involved strengthening its links with the community of our city; something that I think is sometimes lost in student radio in order to fit a commercial brief. I encourage every one of our members to be as creative as possible with their involvement in our society. Whether that is creating their own online brand inspired by their show, organising their own event or being a integral part of one of LSR’s many teams. I am so lucky to be surrounded by exciting and innovative people (see below) and with their help Leeds Student Radio is set for it’s most boundary-pushing year on air yet.

Fin McAllister.

Head of Breakfast

Fin McAllister

A good breakfast show sets up the entire day of broadcasting and on professional stations becoming a breakfast presenter remains probably the most sought after position on air. Breakfast at LSR is dynamic and original, with each day of the week having the opportunity to be slightly different depending on the presenters fronting each show. This year we are also introducing Music Mondays on LSR, a collaboration between the Music Team and Breakfast Team, showcasing the new music on our playlists each week.

Anyone can be a part of The Beat, even if you’ve never been on the radio before, or you’d prefer not to be speaking on the radio.

Lauren Ellis
James Ward

Heads of News

Lauren Ellis and James Ward

News on Leeds Student Radio is, in all honesty, the best part of LSR. If you’re interested in all types of journalism we are an amazing group to be part of. We welcome those that don’t know how to do radio or haven’t even been in a studio before – we are one of the most inclusive parts of the station. Last year we covered nationwide protests, interviewed party leaders Natalie Bennett and Jeremy Corbyn (for some reason David Cameron declined to talk to us). Contact us to get involved.
