I broadcast regularly on my local BBC and independant radio stations as an astronomy “expert” (ha!) at times when an astronomy- or spaceflight-related story is in the news, i.e. an important space mission, an eclipse or meteor shower, etc.
I am also frequently interviewed live on the air by reporters and news editors from The Bay Radio, Lakeland Radio and BBC Radio Cumbria, and have a regular Sunday evening “slot” with BBC Radio Cumbria’s presenter Sally Moon in which I talk about topical astronomical and spaceflight stories.
I also supply all my local and regional TV stations and news programmes - Border TV’s “Lookaround”, BBC’s “Look North” (Newcastle) and “North West Tonight” (Manchester) – with information about astronomy- and spaceflight-related events and news stories, and they regularly show my astro-images during their weather bulletins.
…and with two naked eye comets due to be visible in our night sky during 2013, I expect to be very busy…
