“Johnny is a sharp, fast worker with one finger permanently on the pulse of celebrity culture. Particularly strong on television and music, he has a natural ability to know which stories are going to hit hardest for an online audience. He’s also able to predict where the next one is going to come from. A pleasure to work with, his professionalism is matched only by his sense of humour.” David Marsland, AudioBoom News Editor
“In a category (Best Journalistic Programming, Student Radio Awards 2014) so totally packed with remarkable content and talent, Johnny’s entry did something very difficult to achieve: it really stood out. He perfectly balanced the ‘personal’ and the ‘professional’ in a documentary which, for student radio, is astonishingly mature in both its concept and storytelling. Johnny researched and delivered a programme with incredible access to key contributors. But crucially the storytelling mechanism and narrative was so clear that the heartbreaking purpose of the piece was able to have the impact that it rightly should. An incredible piece of student radio.”    Tim Johns , BBC Radio 2 


‘Johnny is very knowledgable about what makes good radio as he lives and breathes it. I’d describe Johnny as a walking celebrity gossip column. He demonstrates a keen eye for all things showbiz and builds this into his broadcasting very well. Johnny has a unique talent to make witty entertainment packages one minute then something quite moving the next. His excellent documentary ‘Auschwitz and Me’ is proof of this. Johnny can make great radio no matter the subject’ Andy Martindale, Free Radio
