About Mike Porter

Over the past 24 years I've worked for many local radio stations, including Chelmsford Radio, Connect FM (Northampton), Dream 100 (Chelmsford), Essex FM, SGR (Colchester), Southend Radio, Ten17 (Harlow), The Breeze (Essex), Time FM (Romford) and Vibe FM (Bury St Edmunds). I joined Phoenix FM in February 2014 taking over the Drive show, and moved to the Breakfast Show in March 2015. You can hear an easy listening format with travel news every 30 minutes, Mikey's Bangers after 8 and the Top Ten From When after 9. I fill the rest of the day by voicing adverts and audio books from my own studio - see www.britishvoiceover.me.uk for more details.

Hannah’s head shave

Update! Here are some pictures from the actual shave:

Today it was my pleasure to talk to an amazing person.

Just over two years ago Hannah Anderson’s sister, Katie, died after a four year battle with a brain tumour. She had many rounds of chemotherapy which caused her hair to fall out on more than one occasion. The Princess Trust gifted Katie a wig which was styled just for her and Hannah promised Katie that she would shave off my hair and donate it to the Princess Trust.

Katie would be 16 years old on the 22nd January and Hannah felt the need to celebrate her special day in some way – so it’s time the hair came off.
