Radio presenter unveiled as face of regional publisher’s website

Charlie O'BrienA radio presenter has been unveiled as the face of a regional publisher’s new family-focused website.

Charlie O’Brien, left, has joined the KM Group’s venture My Kent Family, and will write a weekly blog for the website on motherhood.

Charlie, who is mother to 15-month-old Noah, is a presenter on Heart Radio, and is also an occasional newspaper reviewer for Sky News.

My Kent Family was set up last month as an ‘essential guide to family life’ for readers.

Said Charlie of her new role: “I am so excited and feel very privileged to be part of this, mainly because Kent is such a special place for me.

“I worked in the county for years and years and years, and I’ve lived pretty much in Kent my whole life.”

Charlie started her career as a broadcast journalist, working her way up from junior reporter to regional news editor in the space of just four years.

During this time she won an EDF Energy Journalist of the Year prize and was nominated for a prestigious Sony Radio Award.
