Congratulations to Mim Shaikh, formerly of Leeds Student Radio, for getting a show on BBC Asian Network. His show will start at the end of November, and you’ll be able to hear him on Thursday, 9pm – midnight.
Mim won Student Radio Awards in 2012 for both ‘Best Specialist Music Programming’ and ‘Best Interview’.
Mim said to the BBC: “I’m really excited to be joining BBC Asian Network. My brand new show will consist of an eclectic range of music as well as incorporating the element of youthful debate, focusing on monthly topics including music, fashion, film, and culture, all from young people’s perspective, a view which can easily get lost in the media. I can’t wait to start.”
