My name is Jon Collier and I was born with a disability called Cerebral Palsy also I suffer from a stutter meaning that sometimes when I speak I will struggle to get my words out but I always manage to get them out in the end, and I first became interested in Radio broadcasting back in 2004 where I attended a special needs school and college in Exeter called The West Of England school and college, there they had a radio station called VI Radio which I use to help out with LIVE radio shows and during my short period of time I spent there you can most definitely say I caught the Radio broadcasting bug there and then (the VI stands for Visually Impaired).
But however, it wasn’t until 2012 “A total of 4 years after I moved into Northfield House in Williton” that I first heard about this awesome and amazing radio station called 10Radio since then I have been a 10Radio presenter and broadcaster for a number of years and I’m still there and I have met lots of great and awesome people who I must say have “become friends for life” so you could say that I absolutely love and adore my 10Radio family..
Below you will find a picture of me in the 10Radio studio not long after I first joined this awesome and amazing radio station 10Radio..
