My name is Jordan Burns and I present Afternoons with Jordan weekdays from 12 until 4pm. As this is my very first blog post I thought I’d tell you a little bit about myself as well as what you can expect from my show!
I am 24 years old and recently graduated from the University of Sussex with a Masters Degree in Multimedia Journalism. A lot of my friends have told me that I can talk for England, so I combined that with my passion for music and decided to become a radio presenter. To be honest, I don’t think there are many other professions out that would let me rabble on as much as radio does, so it’s definitely a great career choice for me.
So what can you expect from my show? LOADS OF THINGS! Let me list them for you:
- The latest music from the UK and beyond. I love all kinds of music, from pop to rock, rap to dance and indie to grime, so expect to hear a wide range of music when listening to my show. I am always listening out for the latest tunes so I will be playing all the latest chart stuff as well as brand new music from up and coming acts.
- Games. In my opinion, radio isn’t just about music… it’s about having as much fun as possible! So keep your ears open for the many games that I play on my show – feel free to join in from home too! You can expect numbers such as Drop It Like Its What? and Stranded on Gatwick Runway! to appear on my show regularly, but I won’t tell you what they involve here, so you’ll just have to listen!
- Banter and Gossip. I love showbiz news and trash TV, so I’ll be bringing you the latest banter and gossip from TV, music, showbiz and more!
- #RetroRunway. The last hour of my show is dedicated to those oldies but goldies! Make sure you listen in between 3 and 4pm to hear some of the best songs from before the year 2000! S Club 7 anyone?
And that’s that! I hope you enjoy my show as much as I do and I look forward to bringing you all of the above and more! If you want, give me a follow on my Twitter account @itsjordanagain – strike up some conversation, ask me a question or even request a song… it’s up to you!
See you on the airwaves!
