Kev Lawrence joins BBC Radio Cambridge for Breakfast

Former Heart Cambridgeshire and Peterborough breakfast show presenter Kev Lawrence is joining BBC Radio Cambridgeshire to host breakfast from July 1st.

Kev replaces Thordis Fridriksson who will return to afternoons.

He left Heart last month after 20 years to make way for Heart’s new networked breakfast show.

Kev says: “I’m really excited about the opportunity and can’t wait to get started. We want to create a show that leaves you smiling and feeling good about the day ahead. Every morning, we’ll be a part of the place where you live and the community that’s your home.”

Editor of BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, David Harvey told RadioToday: “Like tens of thousands of Cambridgeshire people, I’ve grown up with Kev Lawrence on the radio. He’s at all the big events, seems to know every person, every place.

“He has that wonderful ability to sound like a much-loved friend and I can’t think of a better presenter to showcase the best of our wonderful county every morning. He’s part of our BBC team now and we’re really excited to be the new home for his passion and creativity.”
