Jocelin Stainer, Head of Production, BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra & Asian Network


Jocelin has student radio to thank for her career. In the late 90’s she spent more time in the RaW (Radio Warwick) studio than she did in a lecture room.

That experience got me a ‘Production Traineeship’ at BBC Radio 1. Fast forward a decade and she was ‘Editor’ at Radio 1/1Xtra overseeing their daytime/weekend schedules.

Jocelin left the BBC for 2-years to take up posts at the Ministry of Justice as ‘Head of Prison Radio’ and the Prison Radio Association where she was ‘Director of Development’.

It’s 2018 and she’s now back at the BBC as ‘Head of Production’ for Radio 1/1Xtra and Asian Network.

This is Jocelin’s second appearance as a Demo Factor Judge.

Cleaning, Peonies, sipping Caprina’s, watching Romcoms, playing Netball & Girl Bands.
Overdraft charges, Cigarette smoke & Rudeness.
Favourite Drink
Depends on who's paying. If it's North Media Talent...champagne ;)
Radio Hero
Sara Cox without a shadow of a doubt. No one makes me laugh like Coxy. She is the master of bringing a story to life, of drawing you in to the point that all you're doing is listening.
Three Words
Don't imitate, innovate.
