New daytime schedule announced at BBC Radio London

Former athlete Jeanette Kwakye is to host the afternoon show on BBC Radio London, while Eddie Nestor MBE will present a new mid-morning programme.

There’ll also be new programmes for Radio London presenters Robert Elms and Jo Good in the latest line-up changes at the station.

Executive Editor for BBC Radio London, Sara David said: “London is the best capital city in the world, with 32 boroughs full of different communities who all share a London identity and a love of the city.

“With many local commercial stations becoming national networks, London needs a truly local station that tells the stories of this fascinating place and reflects all of London life.

“This refresh is designed at doing that; becoming the local station London really needs.”

Jeanette Kwakye MBE says: “I am so happy to be presenting afternoons on BBC Radio London. I love this radio station and I’m so excited to be with the listeners all afternoon delivering the best music, news and topical conversations from across our glorious city! I can’t wait to get stuck in.”

Eddie Nestor MBE says, “Get ready London because I’m coming to take over your mid-mornings Monday to Thursday! I can’t wait to bring the biggest London guests and stories and brighten everyone’s day “
