"'Volunteering at Vibe 107.6 FM is an amazing experience for anyone looking to improve their presenting skills and radio confidence. I had only worked in TV prior to joining them and the difference between on-screen and radio presenting is so different! It's a skill that I am still working on now and I do so with amazing support from the whole team at Vibe 107.6 FM. Presenting the breakfast show really threw me in at the deep end and I loved it! The freedom to grow and develop my skills is something I will always be grateful for". Sabrina Chakici, the Host of E! UK & Ireland.
