Broadcaster / University Radio Falmer (URF)
Nick Werren is a student radio presenter at University Radio Falmer (URF) and has been presenting consistently on the student station for three years, two of which were spent as station manager.
The last 3 years have been packed with media experience for the 22 year old. As a student presenter he has presented a radio show for three years, some of which included interviews with such famous figures as Bastille, Brian May, Caroline Lucas, The 1975, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, The Family Rain and Frightened Rabbit. During his two years as station manager of URF, he pushed the rebranding of the student station, and then oversaw the membership of URF double, obtained a state of the art studio for the students of Sussex to use and won an award for “Outstanding Contribution to Student Media” from the University, alongside a first class degree in BSc Physic. Experience learnt from presenting for his local hospital radio, Coastway, and working for BBC Radio Cornwall proved to be invaluable in teaching him the importance of community radio, and how it contrasts to its commercial counterpart.
Although he is currently doing an MSc in Physics at Sussex, Nick is still dedicated to student media. He is still presenting on URF and has a column in the student paper; The Badger. Aside from occasionally funnelling his energy into a stand-up show, Nick puts most of his creativity into his weekly podcast, “Today’s Week, Tonight Weekly” which covers a range of issues, from science to comedy, and music to news.
