"I can’t believe that four years has gone by so quickly, it’s crazy - I will miss my three days a week live here immensely. Vibe was my third radio station since I started on air eight years ago, and by far the longest I’ve spent at any station thus far in my career - it is a brilliant place to hone the craft of radio presenting and I have a lot to thank Vibe and its hardworking and brilliant team for. In my time here I was able to sign with Heart as a new presenter and that wouldn’t have been achievable without the access of being able to go live three days a week across Watford & South West Herts. Viva la Vibe!” Olly Stock - Presenter, Heart Four Counties & Essex | Skyline Events Live Host | DJ.
