Tanya McCarthy

Where in Sussex are you based:
Born and bred in Brighton but now in Burgess Hill

Musical taste:
When I was younger (A long time ago now) I loved indie music and seeing live bands but now I just enjoy loads of good pop music, old and new. Should I admit that my first single was Boom! Shake The Room by DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince????! So maybe safe to say my taste is eclectic.

How long have you been involved in radio:
After years in banking (Yeah, slightly different) I’ve been in radio for almost 3 years now, so I’m still a newbie. I absolutely love it and try to bring lots of fun. I want to give you a good distraction or keep you company in whatever you’re doing.

Favourite part of Sussex: 
This is like picking your favourite child! Obviously, I’m quite biased with my hometown, Brighton. But we visited Arundel a lot when I was young and I've enjoyed taking my own little family there too, absolutely beautiful…. and good pubs too.

What excites you about V2 Radio:
I like radio that's all about local people talking about local things. We all want to relate to whoever we’re listening to. People like to hear some personality and hear something a bit different on the radio now.
Ahem, also, the V2 Radio Team are such a lovely bunch, who are very passionate about local radio so it’s great to be part of this (That's what they told me to say anyway….)
