I first started working with Rik when I was head of production for Guardian Media’s Real Radio Network and he was so good that when I moved to Bauer Media…I took him with me. He’s a true professional, polite, courteous and an exceptionally good voice over. He’s always willing to go that extra mile to help you out. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
