Bossing It with Nicky Ness

"It's the best job in the world", says Nicky Ness, Controller Radio & Entertainment, BFBS (British Forces Broadcasting Service) and she should know, with services right across the Globe! The Radio Academy's Nicci Holliday caught up with Nicky Ness to find out what it's like being the Boss of BFBS...

I thought I knew all about BFBS before I went to visit them and spend time with Nicky Ness, Controller of BFBS Radio & CSE Forces Entertainment. Turns out, I knew very little! BFBS is a global player with local, national and international services with teams right across the world. They’re about as close to their Forces audiences as you can get. As I got chatting to Nicky it was impossible not to be struck by the organisation’s bold and inspiring leadership. It affords BFBS a strong presence and gives their teams shared values even though they are time-zones apart. I came away knowing more, thinking “how do they do it” and if I’m honest, a bit Army green from what is an awesome job! Nicci :)
