Michelle Livesey-Feingold – Patron
Michelle has been a reporter at Hits Radio previously KEY103 since 2005 and has been a journalist for the past 20 years.
As Chief Reporter she was used to being called to report on hard hitting subjects including murders and although always difficult it was part of the job. When she got the call that Clare Wood had been murdered in February 2009 she went out to follow and report on the case. Clare was 36 and was murdered then set on fire by her previous partner George Appleton. He was dubbed the “Facebook Fugitive” who went on the run before hanging himself.
Clare was a Mum and had met Appleton on Facebook; she was unaware of his violent past including harassment, threats and the kidnapping at knife point of one of his ex-girlfriends. Clare was unable to get this information due to data protection.
