About Chris

Chris Batchelor is a former professional radio presenter having broadcast for local commercial radio stations and national radio brands for over a decade.

Today Chris is a freelance voiceover artist and independent radio presenter, producing and presenting online radio programmes form his home studio in Plymouth U.K.

Chris’s love affair with radio began very young, as a child creating a bedroom studio consisting of tape decks and an old public address microphone, that eventually went ‘on air’ thanks to Chris’s friend Oliver who soldered together a small fm transmitter.

Chris’s passion for music, technology and communication is neatly combined through the medium of radio and has always been a keen focus for Chris as both a presenter and listener.
