New breakfast show presenters have been announced for Lancashire-based community station Rossendale Radio.
Valley Breakfast is hosted by returning presenter Pete Sweetmore on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday whilst Paul Jenkins takes over on Tuesday, Thursday. Jo Petrie and Dorrie Partington aka DoJo will host weekends.
Tony Nixon, Station Manager says: “It’s been a lot of hard work turning the ship around but the team we have in place has pulled out all the stops – we’re really excited about the new line-up.”
Former 2BR presenter Dave Metcalfe is on The Valley Today from 11am till 3pm and ex-Smooth Radio North West presenter Derek Webster is on the late show.
The rest of the new line-up includes Bob Chadwick on Drive, replacing Tony Nixon who leaves a daily show to concentrate on running the station.
Weekend presenters include Jeanette Jackson, Sophie Lord, David Reader, Melanie Kemp, Marie Baistow, Catherine Dobson, Heather Parsons and Craig Taylor.
Former breakfast presenter Tony Horne left the station in September after it started an investigation following a ‘serious case of misappropriation of company funds’.
