Born and bred in West Norfolk, Charles Dennett has been a voice on KL.FM 96.7 for nearly two years.

Because he doesn’t have a Norfolk accent he’s known as ‘Posh’ Charles on air and in the office. He knows the station pretty well - he used to read the news.

After realising he had too much personality for just plain old news reading, Charles moved over to presenting in February 2015.

He’s now hosts the Hometime Show, bringing great music, all important traffic and travel information and an unhealthy obsession with Taylor Swift to the airwaves.

Tickets are sale now for the gala night, which will see all the winners in all 13 categories will receiving their awards on Friday October 9 at the Braza Club in Elm Road, March.

The event starts at 6.30pm and goes on til late and includes a sumptuous three course dinner.
