Kelly Westlake

Station Administration (staff)

Kelly heads up the management of RadioReverb’s office and has a radio background that began in 2012 at Coastway Hospital Radio, where she produced & presented a weekly new and local music show for over two years.  

Kelly presented in the evenings and on Saturday mornings on former Brighton station, Juice 107.2

She’s also on the Brighton Sound Women committee.  

She’s nuts about audio (aren’t we all!?) and listens widely every waking hour of every day, especially to podcasts.  In fact, she’s subscribed to so many podcasts that she barely has time for anything else!  

She’s super-neat and tidy, is a sucker for a good administrative system and likes to keep HMS Reverb ship-shape!

Anthony Martin

Anthony has been involved in the Brighton radio world since early 2015, presenting, producing and working behind the scenes at a number of stations. He has made the national radio industry press in that time, when he broadcast a full radio show using only a smartwatch and when he became the first person in the UK + Ireland to capture his radio show in 360 degree video.

Under his stewardship, Coastway Hospital Radio, Brighton, earned a record number of National Hospital Radio Award nominations, including one for himself.  In under a year since launching, his RadioReverb show What’s The Craic? amassed a quarter of a million listens on podcast.

In 2017, he was on the team who worked on the BBC Sussex programme "Running the Brighton Marathon" which went on to win a Silver at the Audio and Radio Industry Awards that year.

Anthony has created digital content for a number of shows and events on BBC Sussex and Surrey and has freelanced for Radio 2 and Radio 4.  He currently produces a range of shows on BBC Sussex and BBC Surrey.

Ben Noble

Ben works full time as a music journo and broadcast producer in Brighton, making radio for basically whoever will let him.  He has presented his own specialist music show on RadioReverb, The Groove Factory, since early 2016, and in that time he has recorded live studio sessions with some excellent bands from Brighton.

Ben now works with RadioReverb to bring new talent, with any level of experience, onto the station, guiding new producers through the submission process, through to training in the studio, and finally to broadcast. “It’s not so long ago that I’d never used a sound desk before - and now it’s my day-job!” he says. “I’m very happy to be helping passionate people get the skills they need to make great radio, and to be expanding the already amazing output of a station that does so much good for the local community.”
