I don't feel like MS is talked about enough. There are people who still think that it's something that only happens once you're older - to people like my mum - but you just have to look at my producer and good friend Beccy to know that's not the case. I think I'm very privileged to have a platform to be able to talk about MS, and if me talking about it in the press makes someone go and get checked, or just generally raises awareness, that's all I can ask for.
In the run up to Christmas we will see more questions asked of the BBC and there will be plenty more speculation about the future broadcasting landscape of the UK. However, one thing is certain this year - radio remains vital in people's lives. Radio showed everyone that it is still the place in the media that is busy with innovation, has famous names people want to talk about and stations that millions of listeners are passionate about.
The key argument seems to be that it these stations lack 'distinctiveness'. The shorthand we often hear - Radios 3 and 4 embody public service broadcasting whilst Radios 1 and 2 are easily replaced by commercial counterparts - is wrong. Take Radio 1. It informs, educates and entertains 10million young listeners a week. It offers daily news (up to six times more news per week than its commercial competitors), regular documentaries (rarely heard on commercial networks) and social action campaigns, highlighting issues like online bullying and teenage suicide. In fact, we estimate around 40% of Radio 1's daytime output is speech - twice as much as comparable commercial outlets.
