Martin and Su from Heart Essex join Radio Essex

Radio Essex has just announced former Heart Essex Breakfast presenters Martin Day & Su Harrison are joining the station for Breakfast.

The pair left the local Heart station earlier this year when the breakfast show went networked with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden.

Martin and Su will replace Chris and Abbie who move to Drive, replacing Paul Lovett who moves to weekends and cover.

Chris and Abbie made the announcement just after the 8am news on Monday morning, followed by the song (Take Another Little) Piece of my Heart by Beverley Knight.

Programme Director and current Breakfast show presenter Chris Brooks told RadioToday: “It’s taken a while to complete but now we’re here. I am absolutely delighted to bring these guys back to their rightful home of morning radio in Essex.

“Myself and Abbie who I currently present The Breakfast Club with are more than happy to move to The Drive Show to make way for these legends! I also want to thank Paul Lovett currently on Drive, for all the hard work he has done for the station over the last 10 years and I am happy that he is staying on with us on our new weekend schedule and helping us with cover as we move forward.

“This is a huge opportunity for us to cement our position as Essex’s number one music station and I can’t wait to hear them back on air in Essex in 2020.”

Su Harrison said: “Well what a year it has been for Martin and I, as most of you will know throughout the summer we have not been on the radio and it has all felt very strange, we have loved broadcasting across the county for the last 18 years together, so it has been an interesting summer not seeing each other each morning, but that is about to change and we couldn’t be happier.

“Yes we will be back on air on the 6th January 2020 doing breakfast on Radio Essex. So wherever you have been for the last seven months please come back to us and we promise to bring the same silly sense of humor back to Essex and wake you up in the Mornings just like we use to, only with not as much P!nk.

Martin Day adds “Support from the people of Essex was unprecedented and a total shock. I had no idea people really liked the show and wish they’d told us when we were on air … looking forward to being a part of people’s morning routine and for having a reason for getting out of bed!”

Martin and Su start on The Breakfast Club at Radio Essex on Monday 6th Jan 2020.
