Hyer's Highlights: Mental Health

October 2017 is officially W!ZARD Radio Station’s Mental Health month – and every show will be speaking about Mental Health is some way in order to raise awareness amongst our audience. We are working hand-in-hand with NSPCC and their team at ChildLine. Mental health is a hugely important issue which is greatly under-discussed on-air, despite it being young people’s #1 concern.

According to research by the NSPCC, more than 50,000 children and young people were counselled by Childline last year (2015-16) after suffering from a serious mental health issue – an average of one every eleven minutes.

On his show this week, Benji Hyer responded to messages from Harry and Natasha with their views on how mental health is perceived in society.

Coverage on this topic will continue in weeks to come.

Broadcasted exclusively worldwide on W!ZARD Radio Station.

Hyer's Highlights: Trump vs the NFL

Hyer's Highlights: Trump vs the NFL

Donald Trump has declared war! Not against North Korea, but against NFL American Football players who are protesting during the national anthem before games.

A record number of players last week ‘took the knee’, inspired by quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who first boldly took the knee way back when Obama was President. It cost Colin his job. At a recent rally, the President controversially branded these protesting players “sons of b*tches”.


A listener to Benji Hyer's show, Jonathan writes that Trump's comments reeks of: "the land of the free, as long as you do as you are told.". And Benji could not agree more. Benji also argues that this isn't about disrespecting the military. Soldiers didn’t die defending a piece of cloth; they died for what the flag is supposed to represent, which is freedom of expression.

Plus, this Trump-NFL spat is actually nothing more than a distraction. He is failing at the moment to push through his new heath care bill or resolved matters with North Korea; plus, half of Puerto Rico is still in devastation. The correlation between the collapse of Trump’s legislative agenda and his heightened interest in Twitter culture war fights is pretty strong, be it with the NFL or basketballer Stef Curry, who turned down Trump’s invitation to the White House this week.

Hyer's Highlights: Party Conferences

Hyer's Highlights: Party Conferences

It's party conference season! Labour got their supporters riled up, and the Tories got off to a shaky start with Theresa May's embarrassing interview with Andrew Marr.

Meanwhile, the Liberal Democrat’s passed without anyone realising. UKIP have elected a new unknown leader.


Corbyn fan Frankie feels that "the Tories have no one remotely capable of being a viable Prime Minister" and that "they have had their day."

Benji Hyer, however, put a dent in Frankie's optimism by saying that though the Conservatives may lose the next general election, the party will be still around for the rest of our lifetimes.
