Karen Winston

I worked in the film industry for 10 years in various different roles, both on and off camera. Movies I have worked on include The Commitments, Widow’s Peak, September, Rawhead Rex, Scarlett and others.

At East Coast Radio I presented several shows, at a variety of different time slots.

After I met my husband and we got married, we went to live in London where I became a stay at home Mum to our three children. When we moved back to Dublin I worked as a voice over artist and also did some presenting on Television.

Your role at Christmas FM
Why Christmas FM
I absolutely love everything about Christmas - the tree, the lights, the food, Santa, presents, shopping, and especially the music. I have been working with Christmas FM for nearly 11 years, and for me, and for nearly everyone I know, it is the official start of Christmas. To be able to give a little back by volunteering for Christmas FM, and to be a part of something that has raised over 1.8 million Euro for charity, is really fantastic.
