New breakfast show for Swindon

BBC Radio Swindon is set to launch a new daily breakfast show from August 29th. Former BBC London breakfast co-host Mark O’Donnell will host the show each weekday from 7am till 10am.

Current Breakfast Show presenter, Peter Heaton Jones is moving to Australia, where he has dual nationality, to work with the broadcaster, ABC.

A delighted Mark says: “I’m really looking forward to joining the breakfast programme where we’ll be looking up at the world with a smile. Everyone who tunes in will get the most up-to-date news and travel, of course, but I want the breakfast programme to offer much more than a passive experience for listeners.

“Every morning I’ll be exploring not just the big stories of the day, but what’s behind them and how they affect people’s lives here in Swindon. I’m naturally curious and collectively, listeners know much more than I do, so I’ll be inviting them to give me their experiences as we look at what’s going on, where, and why. I’m hoping that I’ll have my views challenged through reasoned dissent and debate.”

Tony Worgan, Managing Editor of BBC Radio Swindon says: “Mark takes his fun seriously, and he’s interested in everybody and everything. So not only can our listeners have a good laugh, but I hope they’ll also feel encouraged to contribute their own points of view and local perspectives on the stories of the day.”
