Izzy is a third-year student studying English Literature with Media and Communication at Newcastle University. She is currently Station Manager at Newcastle Student Radio, where she hosts a lunchtime, pop-based radio show. In addition to this, she volunteers at her local radio station Ribble FM, where she presents two music radio shows and reports on district news.
