Stephanie Hirst to cover Fleur East on Hits Radio Breakfast

Stephanie Hirst will host the Hits Radio Breakfast Show for one week along with James Barr and Matt Haslam, covering for Fleur East.

The former Viking FM and Capital Yorkshire breakfast host, who left her last breakfast show eight years ago, joined Bauer Media in 2020 when the network’s LGBTQ+ dedicated station Hits Radio Pride was launched.

Stephanie then joined the main Hits Radio Network team with her weekly Belters show.

Commenting on her new hosting gig, Stephanie told RadioToday: “It’s a real honour to be sitting in for Fleur whilst she is away. It’s been a few years since I set my alarm clock to wake me up in the middle of the night to host a huge show – but I cannot wait to get up to join James and Matt for the Hits Radio Breakfast Show.”

Paul Gerrard, Programme Director, Hits Radio Network, added: “Steph has been a huge part of my radio listening over the years and knows exactly what makes a breakfast show fly.

“I am really looking forward to welcoming Steph to the Hits Radio Breakfast Show team alongside James Barr and Producer Matt.”

Cover starts tomorrow, Thursday 19th Feb, for a week.
