Kay Crewdson has spent 17 years working in television and radio, retraining as a broadcast meteorologist she has spent 10 years forecasting the weather for BBC’s in the north of the UK as well as hosting BBC Radio York’s breakfast show.
On leaving the BBC Kay produced and presented a documentary called “The Emptiness Within” with her close friend Steve.
Their aim? To get the conversation about miscarriage started. To force people to listen to the harsh reality of losing a baby and to educate those who have no idea how to act when a loved one experiences such loss.
The documentary, named after the feeling Kay had when she was told there was no heartbeat, contains honest, frank and graphic descriptions of what it’s like to go through a miscarriage. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p0687ybm
They won gold at the AIB’s (International broadcasting awards), silver at the New York Radio Awards and highly commended at the 02s.
Kay has since gone on to speak about miscarriage at health and wellbeing events as well as becoming Media Director for CRADLE; a new national charity that supports the NHS and parents who are receiving care during or following baby loss.
Before the BBC Kay was a presenter and reporter for Channel M and Pure Radio.
Kay’s other great passions are HiTT training and cleaning!
