Chloe Gunning

Chloe graduated in 2007 with a BA in Drama and Theatre Arts and currently works for Heart FM as a Radio Producer.

What is your current role?

“I work as a producer on Heart Breakfast and Emma Bunton's shows. I love the variety and creativity of what I do. I have worked with some amazing people and had the opportunity to do some very exciting things - from broadcasting live from Disneyland, watching intimate sessions with Michael Buble and Robbie Williams, to producing fun, creative shows with the best presenters and biggest celebrities!”

How did your degree help you in your career?

“My drama degree helped my levels of confidence, and taught me how to work well with others. It also involved audio - which I focused on in the second year. The degree was the sort of all-encompassing course - you had to be really dedicated to do well - the same goes for working in a competitive industry like radio! While at university I gained work experience at BRMB and had my own show on Burn FM. Since leaving I continued to do work experience, landing a great placement at Heart. I was then offered freelance work, and worked there as well as at BBC Radio 1 and Kiss 100.
