BBC Radio Shropshire’s Ryan Kennedy joins online service

Former Beacon Radio and BBC Radio Shropshire presenter Ryan Kennedy is joining online station Shropshire Live for a daily show.

He’ll start on Tuesday 11th April and be on Monday to Friday from 10am till 1pm. Ryan presented his last show on BBC Radio Shropshire this week after 12 years at the station.

Ryan Kennedy said: “I’m looking forward to a new challenge and launching a brand new weekday mid-morning show on Shropshire Live.

“This is something new for the county so I hope you will join me each morning in my new home.”

Chris Pritchard, Editor and breakfast presenter at Shropshire Live said: “We can’t wait for Ryan to join us on air, we know our listeners are going to love the show Ryan has planned.

“The show will be broadcast from Market Drayton which is important for us at Shropshire Live as we want to get into the heart of our local communities at a time when other local media are withdrawing.

“Our existing programmes are broadcast from Shrewsbury, Oswestry, Newport and Dawley.”

Shropshire Live launched on air in October last year as an addition to the news and entertainment website which was established in 2009.
