Operations Team

Kevin Potter General Manager

Kevin began his career in commercial radio in South Africa in the early 90’s. He has worked as a presenter on 3 differently formatted stations during his more than 25 year career - covering mid-morning, Drive and Breakfast Shows, while also tackling Advertising Sales and later management. Prior to joining Hope FM in 2006, Kevin had established and managed the first Community station in his hometown; later setting up a campus radio station for the University at which he was lecturing. While on holiday in the UK in 2003 he was signposted to a vacancy at Bournemouth YMCA for someone to help take Hope FM from its restricted service to a full 24/7 fully fledged community station, which happened after the station was awarded its licence in early 2006.

Daniel Withey Operations Manager

After graduating with a degree in Music Production and Performance, Daniel joined Hope FM in 2009. After two years as a volunteer in the production department he helped run Hope FM’s successful Hope4Me project; a Lottery funded scheme teaching young people, without employment or in training, radio skills. Since then Daniel has continued in his role as Operations Manager, overseeing the day to day running of the station and production department. He has also presented Hope FM’s New Music Show since 2014.

Steve Gregg Social Media Coordinator

Steve has always been interested in radio and when the opportunity arose in 2006 to get involved in the station, he jumped at it and volunteered some free hours in the office. He has also been a presenter on the station during the RSL days presenting a Friday night show. Since then he has been involved in managing and updating the website as well as setting up the station's social media platforms. He now looks after the social media side of things; coordinating and updating the numerous official Facebook pages, Instagram & Twitter. He says, "I am grateful for the opportunity of being able to support the station in building up our public profile."
