As a community radio station, Vibe 107.6 FM provides fantastic experience and training to aspiring broadcasters, producers, programmers and presenters in the area. At present, we are looking for new Drive Presenters but please note that as a non-for-profit radio station, this is a voluntary role.

Previous team members have gone on to work for Capital, KMFM, Juice, Inrix, Heat Radio, Heart, Kiss, Fire Radio, talkRADIO and LBC, as well as TV channels Sky and E!

Drive is a key show at Vibe 107.6 FM, helping to set the tone for the rest of the station and you will create engaging content and provide travel updates to keep South West Herts on the move. You will be talking to a wide range of listeners, so your content needs to be fun, fresh and appealing.
Confidence, enthusiasm, commitment and the skills to present live on air in the evening are vital. You will be trusted to present to a large audience and the ability to deliver the regular local travel bulletins to a high standard is vital.
It is expected that you will involve your audience through social media, texts and on air. Therefore, you will need to put in the time to be creative, take ownership and get really stuck in. This is the ideal show if you are looking to move your presenting career to the next level.
