Richard was born and brought up in Wendover, and before creating Bucks TV he worked for our local radio station Mix 96 for 10 years in various roles including breakfast presenter and roving reporter.
He said: “It was a lot of fun. One day I could be sitting in the theatre interviewing Joan Collins and the next I’m jumping off the high ropes at RAF Halton live on air. That probably wouldn’t be allowed now due to health and safety.”
After leaving the radio station Richard briefly took part in a local television project in Milton Keynes and it was that experience that led to him setting up his own Bucks TV. He said: “There were rumblings at the time that news was all about local tv and the use of the internet, so I set it up to focus on local people.”
