Ken Bruce to take PopMaster on UK workplace tour

Radio 2’s Ken Bruce is taking his show on the road this summer, with a week of PopMaster quizzes live from workplaces.

Starting on Monday 29th July in Northern Ireland before moving onto locations in Scotland, England and Wales, Ken will host his 9.30am-12noon show form offices, shops, factories – with special guests also appearing live.

The BBC says the selected workplaces will ‘Stop For PopMaster’ between 10.30 and 10.45am with two callers taking part and workers watching. Listeners can nominate their workplace to be selected.

Ken says: I’m only allowed out of Wogan House for my yearly pilgrimage to Eurovision, so when it was suggested I take PopMaster around the UK to find out if people really do stop for PopMaster, I jumped at the chance to free myself from the London shackles and escape!”

Lewis Carnie, Head of Radio 2 says: “Ken Bruce is a broadcasting phenomenon who has hosted the mid-morning show on Radio 2 since 1985, and now reaches a weekly audience of 8.81 million listeners. As Ken is one of the UK’s most popular presenters, I’m delighted that the PopMaster himself will get to meet many of his listeners around the country.”
