Radio is a passion of Lucy’s. She first connected with radio after leaving University and discovered what an intimate medium it was for discussing life. She brought her talents to the world of television for a number of years, but has now come full circle to community radio and her show Stay in the Loop with Lucy on 2HHH.
It is a show that encourages us all to stay engaged in life, to see what we sometimes don’t want to see as this supports both our mental and physical health. Children will often look at life in a much simpler way than adults and The Emperor's new clothes always inspired Lucy to consider what could be presented on radio – calling out some of the discrepancies between what we say and what we do.
The shows have covered many subjects with key areas of focus being domestic violence, relationships, homelessness, refugees, corruption, men's health, women's health and parenting.
Lucy has been an active member of the 2HHH outside broadcasting team, taking the radio station out into the community. Outside broadcasts include Anzac Day which is led by Neil Ashworth from his show StreetBeat, International Women's Day, San Run For Life and school fairs to name a few.
Lucy supported Triple H on the membership committee, the board, and now combines her public health work with her community radio endeavours. She is always looking for new and interesting subjects, or different angles of pre-aired topics - there are always fresh eyes and different perspectives. Lucy has taken a break from presenting on 2HHH but continues her interviews with parents and young people through her audio offerings on Back 2 Basics Parenting. Check them out here
