Meet the URB Team
At URB, we have a dedicated and enthusiastic committee who make sure that our university has a student radio station worth listening to, and worth getting involved with. The roles and responsibilities our team has ranges from making sure our station is producing high quality content to dedicated teams choosing the music that goes on air.
So here is the URB Committee of 2017/18.

Liam is our station manager, and is responsible for managing the station and making sure everything is running smoothly. His responsibilities include co-ordinating the committee, communicating with important external sources and leading URB when organising large events such as Fresher's Week. He is also the main contact and representative of URB when in contact with the Student's Union and the Media Exec, making sure URB's voice is heard. Contact him at email@example.com
Elliott Martin: Programme Controller

His job is to control and moderate what goes on air at URB, and to make sure the station is playing high quality content and keep URB's reputation as an award winning student radio station intact. He also schedules the shows URB has to offer, and liaises with presenters and DJ's to inform them of their show times. Other than dedicating his spare time to URB, his favourite band is (still) Sum 41 , he has an unhealthy obsession with Tottenham Hotspur, and has also been nominated for an SRA Award.

He also acts as the Executive producer for URB’s flag ship output, ensuring that our flagship programming is accessible for all and is keeping up with URB's high standard. Fun fact about Jack - it took him seven times to pass his driving test; seventh time the charm. Contact him at email@example.com
Nakeitha Delanancy: Head of Advertising and Marketing
Hi, my name is Nakeitha (Niks) and I am a final year Sociology with Management student. I have recently returned from a 13 month marketing placement at Microsoft, and I am now the current Head of Marketing and Advertising at Uni Radio Bath. In 2015 I was the Head of Station Sound. So what does my role entail? To summarise, I am solely responsible for managing all aspects of URB’s marketing including: all social media handles, channels, digital and online platforms, to design, drive and land and campaigns, coordinating and sourcing partnerships with local businesses, and driving URB led events and on-campus presence. This year, we have so many exciting, new, initiatives already in the pipeline, it would be great to get some marketing guru’s together across various times of the Radio calendar.
