A South Yorkshire college student is fulfilling a lifelong dream after securing a regular spot on a local radio station.

Jake Cleary, an Interactive Media student at Barnsley College, will be live on We Are Barnsley every Wednesday delivering the station’s football report.

Jake, a former Netherwood ALC pupil, kick-started his radio career by training at YMCA Radio. The budding sports journalist has always wanted to work in either radio or print and feels that his course is helping him progress in the right direction.

The 18-year-old said: “I’m doing something I’m really passionate about with the help of the skills I have gained through my course. I’m really focused on progressing my radio career further after college and plan on studying a broadcasting related degree at university.”
