With the general election upon us, Matthew will be hosting an election night special on local radio in Bristol.
He’ll anchor a discussion and results show through the night from 10pm until breakfast, featuring interviews, reactions, live links with reporters at the counting centres across the city and examing the national picture as results come in from around the UK.
Matthew is well known for thriving on live performance situations and broadcast. Speaking earlier today, he said: “This is going to be an exciting night. It’s one of the most unpredictable elections in living memory and this, in turn, adds an extra layer of excitement to a live broadcast.”
BCfm Station Manager, Patrick Hart, approached Matthew with the broadcast proposal in early March.
Although most people know Matthew for his event and pyrotechnics work, he is no stranger to marathon live broadcasts. He has presented live web-streamed coverage of the National Twelve Bell Final for the past two years to a global audience.
The election night broadcast starts at 22:00 on 7th May. It will be available across Bristol on 93.2FM, online via www.bcfmradio.com and simulcast with www.piratenationradio.com.
