Liz Roberts is Content Lead and has been in the role since 2016 after working for the first TV station here in the Islands. Liz has been at Falklands Radio for ten years as a presenter and you can hear The Hits of the 80s and 90s with Liz on Wednesday night from 8.30.
Liz moved to the Falkland Islands in January 1994 “I was just 16 back then and petrified of the move from Wales”. “Ever since being knee high to a grasshopper, music has been my passion, which is why I applied for a presenting job here at Falklands Radio in the first place, even though I was petrified of speaking on air; over the years I’ve grown in confidence and wouldn’t be me now without the show.”
The News Editor role came about after running the first TV Station here in the Islands for 3 years. Liz says her hopes for the future is that Falklands Radio develops even further and is on air all day and that way she says “I’d love an afternoon show! PLEASE!!”
