Nicola Richards is one of England’s fastest rising stars of voice over, with a career that so far has included radio, television and new media! In just three short years she has become the voice of Noel Edmonds Radio Positivity, secured her own positive vibes talent chat show on Croydon Radio and has become the go to girl for the nation’s biggest radio stations (Magic FM, BBC Radio and TalkSPORT among them!) to report the travel news – and engage radio’s biggest stars in cheeky banter!
Nicola started her broadcasting career with Radio Jackie (one of the original pirate stations!) co-hosting the breakfast show before moving on to the bigger world of voiceover (presenting for Croydon TV and becoming the voice of MPC Films along the way) and her massive personality has taken her all over the world as a hospitality and travel expert, her positive and upbeat voice being used by some of the industries premier cruise lines including Regent and Disney. Nicola feels she is only just begun and invites everyone to follow her journey and tips for a positive life on her massively popular blog ‘Nicola Said’!
