#VOICEPEOPLE - Xan Phillips

Who are you, What do you do at Voice and how long have you been involved?

Presenter of The Business Xan Phillips has been with Voice FM since late 2011.

How did you find out about Voice and what inspired you to want to volunteer?

It was a colleague at work who sent me a story about a new community station launching  in Southampton and as I love the radio, its impact and potential to do good I grabbed the chance.

What is it you love about being involved?

You have responsibility but doing a specialist show gives you freedom to find guests that are interesting and hopefully inspire the listener. You are also able to bring new music to the table which is always a blessing.

What's been your favourite thing it has enabled you to do so far?

Present a radio show that gives a different approach to business, along with introducing some environmental themes
