OUR HONORARY JUDGE
-RADIO STAR 2018 WINNER
The man who's had first hand experience of what Radio Star is all about. Our 2018 winner, Andy Thompson
Andy, from Hull in the UK, blew us away immediately with his vocal tone and story telling. He said it was one of his ambitions in life to present a radio show but he had never previously taken steps to make that a reality. His wife encouraged him to enter Radio Star and by winning the competition, he proved to himself that he DID have what it takes to present great radio.
Andy went on after winning the competition to devise, produce and present his show on Fabulous 103 FM in Pattaya.
He also realised that one side of the industry he didn’t want, was the attention that being a presenter brings with it, so he has chosen to stay in the background, concentrating in the production and music end of things.
