Nic Foster

Nic started his road to radio as a mobile DJ back in the early 80s, swiftly moving on to the club scene where he had many successful residencies. It was a chat with a friend while listening to the great Richard Allinson on Capital Radio that set him on course for a 30+ year career in the world of the wireless.

Hospital Radio beckoned where he honed his skills and less than a year later, he joined a local radio company to present their morning show. That was short lived as financial difficulties forced the station to close so Nic continued with his club work while seeking out new employment in the radio world doing gigs at the infamous Radio Top Shop in Oxford Circus, London.

A move to the west country to join Plymouth Sound, then Devon’s Gemini FM gave Nic the opportunity to display his skills in presenting any time-slot he was given. Nic was also plying his trade at other radio stations across the UK. After a few years Nic was enticed to return to London to be part of the launch team for a new form of radio that was just starting to appear – Storm Live was the UK’s first Internet Radio station.

Whilst at Storm Live Nic stumbled across a radio station that fascinated him as it was rather a unique broadcaster as it entertained a specific audience – the British Armed Services. In 2000 Nic joined BFBS (British Forces Broadcasting Service).

It has taken Nic around the world presenting all sorts of programmes from Navy ships and mountain top observation posts in the Falkland Islands, breakfast shows in the Balkans, Gibraltar and Germany to the Official UK Top 40 which was aired on every radio station across the globe in the BFBS family, to name but a few.

Nic continued, alongside his BFBS work, to present programmes at other radio stations in the UK where he first stepped into radio management plus, he developed, presented and produced a programme that champions new music which aired on several stations across the Middle-East, along with his club work. In 2010 Nic was asked to join a team in Amman, Jordan to relaunch 2 radio stations where he stayed for 2-years.

On Nic’s return from Jordan he continued to present programmes at stations in the UK and he re-joined BFBS (where he has been presenting programmes ever since) along with developing his new music format programme and being a commercial voice-over and corporate event host. Nic has also appeared in a couple of Cannes Film Festival nominated feature films and he still is on-screen from time-to-time.
