Radio journalist Emma Carrick is to take up a new post in Cardiff after 16 months reporting the news for The Pulse of West Yorkshire in Bradford.


Emma (22), the daughter of former Yorkshire cricket captain Phil Carrick, starts work next week as a broadcast journalist at Real Radio.


The station broadcasts across Cardiff, Swansea, Newport and the Valleys – and Emma is looking forward to the challenge of reporting the news for a big regional independent radio station.


“I’ve had a fantastic time at The Pulse and this job has really been a great opportunity for me,” said Emma, who graduated with a degree in Journalism from the University of Lincoln in 2001.


“But my new job at Real Radio is very exciting and I’m really looking forward to getting started.”


Emma, who is originally from East Morton near Keighley, began work at The Pulse in March last year after spending nine months in charge of the University of Lincoln’s radio station, Siren FM.


“Bradford’s a very newsy patch and I’ve covered some really good stories while I was here,” she said.


“I’ve also had exclusive interviews with Gareth Gates and Iain Duncan Smith.”


In addition to her Journalism degree Emma gained valuable experience working on Yorkshire Television’s Countdown series, BBC Radio Lincolnshire, BBC Radio Leeds and Viking FM.
