Weekday schedule shuffle at BBC Radio Scotland

It’s all change at BBC Radio Scotland with new presenters on weekday breakfast, lunchtime and drivetime.

Good Morning Scotland will see long-standing anchor Gary Robertson joined by Senior Broadcast Journalist Laura Maxwell, replacing Hayley Millar who is moving to lunchtime for a new show with Mhairi Stuart called Lunchtime Live.

The current lunchtime host John Beattie will then move to a new two-hour drivetime show.

Gary Smith, BBC Scotland’s Head of News, says: “Our three daytime news programme will all have a very distinctive feel and style to them, reporting the news that matters to the Radio Scotland audience in a tone that’s warm and accessible.

“Each of the three pillars of our schedule – breakfast, lunch and drive – will be hosted by presenters with years of journalism experience behind them. These changes ensure that our station remains at the forefront of delivering agenda-setting content that showcases radio journalism at its finest.”

BBC Radio Scotland says the schedule changes are likely to begin in the next few months.
