A life in radio, with BBC Radio Cambridgeshire’s Sue Dougan

This September BBC Radio Cambridgeshire's Sue Dougan will be joining Creative Ely to talk about her career, which started at the age of 15.

Her favourite radio moments are a mixture of fun and fascination. Such is the uniqueness of the job, she's equally happy spending a morning recording at an auction (where she was careful not to scratch her nose for fear of catching the auctioneer's attention!) or an eye-opening tour of the sewerage works at Milton!

She loves telling great stories on the afternoon show and in the Chat Room (weekday afternoons from 2pm, as part of the programme). Sue and guests have discussed all sorts - from honesty, fidelity, funny moments and great achievements to death, eating disorders, disability and domestic violence.

      Hi Tom, sorry you couldn't make it but we'll put together some sort of blog post so you can see what you missed!

    Fascinating evening, thanks for coming Sue and sharing your insights and experiences. Must make a change to be the person answering the questions rather than asking!

    Excellent speaker. Coped, as you'd expect a pro interviewer would, perfectly with the grilling questions too.
