Laurie presents & produces The New Media Show and Live at BBC Oxford every week for BBC Radio Oxford, and before that presented/produced Time Out with Laurie Bailey between Aug 18 & Sep 19. He is also a regular live cover presenter for Adam Ball on Drivetime & Sophie Law on Early Breakfast.
His broadcasting career started in a living room with The Super Bailey Bros podcast. In just a few months, BBC Oxford took an interest, which eventually led to becoming their weekly film critic, DVD/TV reviewer for Tony Blackburn on BBC Berkshire, contributor to several Christmas film radio specials & half-page film columnist for The Oxford Paper.
In May 2018, he was invited to plan and launch two brand new evening programmes for BBC Oxford: a 2-hour Wednesday evening programme showcasing a more modern playlist, moving to a 3-hour Friday evening arts, culture and entertainment programme from August (Time Out).
In August 2019, Laurie felt a change was needed and successfully pitched two new programmes to BBC Oxford. The New Media Show sees him interviewing big & small names in the world of podcasts, YouTube channels & other new media, while Live at BBC Oxford sees him explore Oxfordshire’s live music scene.
Known for his warm and relatable voice, skilled interviews, production ability and creative flair, he is a fast-rising broadcast talent.
