Verity Wilde

Loves F1 and one driver in particular

Where are you from? A village in Northamptonshire, near the Bucks border

What were you doing before radio? University – and working in a shop

Best part of the job? You never know what’s going to happen next

Moment you'd most like to forget?  Getting the hiccups during a news bulletin

Three words that describe you: Talkative, nosy and geeky

What advice would you give to anyone hoping to get started in journalism? Do as much work experience as you can – and keep badgering people for jobs

Dream interview? David Coulthard – I’m a huge formula 1 fan and he’s been my favourite driver since I was 10!

If I wasn't a news reporter I'd be... Doing something to do with History
