Former BBC Journalist, Nic Moneypenny, has been suffering from Severe Long Covid Syndrome since Xmas 2019, so struggles to do the regular writing and typing stuff! But with lots of opinions and a strong voice, she is now regularly on talk radio stations like LBC & BBC to talk about all the hot news topics and especially to give opinions on the pandemic and virus related issues.
And having studied many immunology, epidemiology and virology disciplines, she is such a nerd on all the science bits that some even call her the ‘Human Encyclopaedia’ ..always keen to build awareness of Covid-related illness and help anyone needing support
Miss Moneypenny (Nic) is a popular member of both the STEREO and CLUBHOUSE online audio communities, with over 1 million followers. She is active most days talking about subjects like Covid, vaccines, mental health, Formula 1 and even dog lovers’ chat.
Prior to illness, Nic launched and ran Cheltenham-based consultancy firm MItchell Moneypenny for 15 years, providing business strategy and ‘trouble-shooting’ services; marketing, social-media and PR; plus guidance on mortgages, insurance, protection and financial planning.
With over 25 years financial services marketing, media and business strategy experience, Nic is an FCA qualified CeMAP mortgage introducer and protection adviser. She also enjoys working part-time as a freelance journalist and provides support to small businesses needing to increase their profile.
More recently, due to ill health, Nic has been unable to write and has therefore used dictation software, video-chat and TV/Radio outlets to continue her campaigns to help the self-employed, small businesses and local charities.
Having started her career as a local radio journalist and presenter at BBC Radio Essex, she is now using her time during ‘shielding’ to re-visit these skills as a regular contributor to BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Radio London, BBC local radio, LBC, Channel 4, ITN and various other online media outlets. Ironically she has spent so much time studying virology, epidemiology and medical science that she has now become one of social-media’s new ‘experts’ on Covid-19.
