Outside of his work, Jeremy has worked on a community radio station to develop his voice on air.

When asked how it would feel to be 2022’s Radio Star, Jeremy said: “I don’t think that I could cope. Getting to the top 25 was the target that to me anything else anything beyond that is now a bonus.”

He added: “I was so stoked to be top in the semi-final to get through to the final that I haven't even thought about winning it.”

The winner of the competition will receive their own show on a commercial radio station, Radio Fam merch, radio coaching and three months of free Audyllic usage.
