Future Radio’s station manager leaves to travel the world

After eight years at the helm of Norwich's Future Radio, Tom Buckham is leaving to travel the world.

Mr Buckham, 30, has been station manager since it was launched in 2004 and has seen it progress to a full-time station which this month celebrates its fourth anniversary.

'It is constantly evolving and every day is different, which is why I have enjoyed working at Future,' said Mr Buckham, pictured right, on his last day yesterday.

'One of the reasons I like Future Radio is we try to give a true reflection of what Norwich is about and what makes it great. As a result, we work with people from all walks of life, all ages and with lots of different interests and backgrounds. I have met some really nice, really interesting people in my time as manager.'

Mr Buckham is travelling with his girlfriend Emma Ward, 30 and their trip starts in India next month. He pledged his support to the Evening News' Save Our Future Education campaign which wants to save the project's school in West Norwich.
