Broadcasting to Patients in Reading's Hospitals Since 1957



Leo joined Hospital Radio Reading in April 2009 and has been co-hosting the Monday night Record Requests Show since his arrival. He also co-presented a 3-week Breakfast radio show with fellow HRR member Jonathan Sawyer during the summer of 2010.

Leo is half-English and half-Italian and was born in 1991 in Oxford but moved to Reading in 2007 and was educated at the Elvian Scool and Highdown School & Sixth Form Centre. It was while at the Elvian that he heard about HRR through Chairman Gerard Rocks, who was teaching there at the time. 

When not on HRR Leo is a big football fan and supports Manchester United. He loves all sorts of music ranging from Pop to Hip-Hop/R&B. His favourite singers include Tinie Tempah, Bruno  Mars, Adele and Michael Bublé.

Leo has many plans for his future and would one day like to host his own radio show, either nationally or locally. For the time being, though, he enjoys his time at HRR and hopes to be involved for as long as he can.
