CHARLOTTE Green was greeted by a large audience. She calmly delivered an amusing and informative guide to her work at the BBC, occasionally reading from her new book, The News Is Read By....
She has had a love of radio since childhood, when it was always on at home. The audience chuckled when she said that her mother had to contend with her practising the news, whilst her sister pounded away on the piano!
Charlotte’s other great interest was acting. People all said she has a great voice and should use it for a job. She admitted that she was a chatterbox as a child.
Being on university radio, led to her finally getting a job at the BBC, reading the news.
Laurie McMillan was her mentor, showing her the ropes. Charlotte was left on her own one day, and realised that she had to read the news. She felt that she read it rather fast, but afterwards Laurie said how well she had done this.
