Emma’s worked in the broadcasting industry for more than 25 years – her career has seen her presenting breakfast radio programmes on Red Dragon FM and Capital Gold London, as well as television weather reports for ITV regions.  Her voiceover work, which began very soon after her first radio work, has ranged from programme narration, to commercials to guiding more than 7 million Londoners every day!

In 2006, Emma was selected to voice Transport for London’s new iBus system, announcing more than 19,000 bus stops on the city’s 8,600 buses.  She’s now heard on the Riverbuses and London Overground trains and has recorded in excess of 60,000 announcements.  And in 2018, she’ll be heard on the new Elizabeth Line (Crossrail).

Other voiceover projects have included advertising campaigns for Sensodyne, Transport for London and KLM, bus tour commentaries for London, user guides for Amazon Fire TV, as well as a Samsung ‘intelligent personal assistant’ for smart TVs.
