Benji Holmes / Assistant Station Manager
Benji Holmes shows
Benji joined Bailrigg FM in his first year, and by the end of second term was the Head of News and Head of speech. After working on the 2019 campaign to save Bailrigg’s FM license, helping to organise the 50th anniversary celebration and working to improve content output, Benji became Assistant Manager at the start of second year.
The new management structure was written by Benji and then-assistant-manager Thom Lingard during their summer holiday, and together they organised a push to increase membership, eventually recruiting more than 50 students.
As Assistant Manager, Benji works on the day-to-day running of the station, acting as a second to the Station Manager, and also handles all HR concerns. In November 2019, Benji started presenting his show ‘Future Hits’, sharing new music from up-and-coming artists, alongside the music that inspires them.
