Who's Who

 

BETH HILTON - managing DIRECTOR  

Beth moved to Scilly in 1999 and worked in a variety of jobs on St Mary’s before leaving to study for an MA in journalism from Sheffield University. She trained with the Press Association then spent seven years as a reporter and news sub-editor for for entertainment website Digital Spy.  

Beth edits Scilly Now & Then magazine and the This is Scilly News website alongside managing Radio Scilly. She also has four rescue dogs and two cats and is writing a book.

I trained as a journalist but the sum total of my radio experience is three weeks writing news reports for Radio Scilly founder Keri Jones and my own hour-long ‘Music from 1930-1970’ show. Radio is a whole new and vaguely scary world, but it’s fun learning the ropes!

Will Lethbridge - presenter / producer 

Will grew up in Scilly and his family go back generations.   After finishing school he went on to study Media at Cornwall College before studying Journalism at University in Falmouth. After a few years in Scilly, Will travelled for a year and after a short seasonal stint in Scilly he moved up to London. During his time in London, Will worked predominantly in Film and Television Marketing for major companies before working in Social Media and Marketing Communications for the Rugby World Cup before moving back to Scilly to pursue his ambitions in Broadcasting. 

I am really pleased to have the opportunity to put my studies into practice whilst enjoying living close to my family friends
