Tributes paid to Capital Breakfast Producer Joe Lyons

Joe Lyons, Senior Producer of Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp, has died.

Roman Kemp and the team paid an emotional tribute to Producer Joe on the show this morning just after 8am.

“We’re a massive family at Capital, and you’re part of that, and I wanted to share some really sad news with you,” Roman said.

Roman went on to let listeners know about losing his best friend and the impact Joe made to him and his colleagues.

Joe has been producing Roman at Capital since 2016, starting producing him on the evening show then moving to breakfast a year later.

He has worked for Global for almost 10 years, previously at LBC and as a video content producer. He also produced Capital Breakfast when it was hosted by Dave Berry and Lisa Snowdon.

Joe was one of the ReelWorld Radio Academy 30 under 30 in 2016 and also had spells at Apple Music and talkSPORT.

Roman Kemp and the breakfast show team Sian Welby and Sonny Jay left the show during Tuesday morning last week when they found out the sad news.
