Coventry Hospital Radio Presenter Gets His Own Show On BBC Radio

One of our own presenters Dan Sambell has now achieved his goal and his boyhood dream and become the host of his very own show on BBC CWR in Coventry.

Dan who started with Coventry Hospital Radio 8 years ago at the age of 16 and presents his show on a Monday morning between 11am and 1pm has always dreamt of becoming a professional radio presenter and now it has happened.

After leaving school Dan, now 25, attended Coventry City College where he learned the skills he needed to become a radio presenter, including script writing, editing and audio production.

“It was the perfect course and gave me all the experience needed to get me where I am today.

“If it wasn’t for the college, I would not even have applied to the BBC, it was my tutor at the time gave me the confidence to do it.”

Dan’s new show on BBC CWR, Make A Difference goes out every Saturday evening between 6pm -8pm and tells stories of local hero’s from around the region who have stepped up and helped during the recent pandemic.

So far these shows have included a woman who sold knitted hearts to raise money for a defibrillator and 4×4 volunteers who helped transporting patients during the heavy snowfalls.

The team here at Coventry Hospital Radio are very proud of our Dan Sambell and hope he goes further.
