Peter Cook says: "I'm delighted to be returning to BBC Radio Suffolk. They're a hugely talented and dedicated team, both on and off-air, and it'll be a privilege to work with them.
"After 13 years of living and working in Suffolk, during which I met and married my wife Angela, this will feel very much like a home-coming. I know from experience that the listeners of Radio Suffolk are passionate about their station and I'm looking forward to hearing what they think about it.
"I've loved every moment of working at Radio Norfolk, a time during which the station has achieved record audience figures making it the most listened to BBC Local radio station in the country, and I've been lucky enough to work alongside some brilliant people including the Editor David Clayton and many talented broadcasters."
