Anne Diamond to quit BBC Oxford

Anne Diamond is leaving BBC Radio Oxford’s breakfast show after 18 months to pursue her writing.

Anne, who is working on a new book, will present her last breakfast programme for the station tomorrow, but may return for some special features in the future.

Steve Taschini, Executive Editor of BBC Oxford, said: “Anne Diamond joined the station in 2004 to lead the new schedule line-up and has been successful in bringing a more youthful style to the breakfast programme.

“Her experience as a national broadcaster has added a special dimension to our local programmes but the lure of national television and other projects has proved too tempting so she has decided to move on in that direction.”

Replacing Anne from Monday 20 March is Sybil Ruscoe.

Sybil is an established broadcaster having worked on BBC Radio 1 and Radio Five Live.

Steve Taschini says: “Sybil Ruscoe is a superb, professional broadcaster who has already found a place in the hearts of our audiences as Anne’s deputy presenter over the past year.

“She cut her broadcasting teeth on Radio 1 and Radio Five Live.

“Currently she is a sports columnist for the Daily Telegraph and will bring a love not just of sport to our breakfast show but a deep passion for Oxfordshire having moved into the Cotswolds when she married last September.”

Tune into BBC Radio Oxford 95.2FM on Monday 20 March from 7.00 to 10.00am to hear Sybil’s first breakfast show.
