BBC Radio Sheffield is to launch a revised weekday schedule next week, lead by a new breakfast show with Toby Foster. Current host Antonia Brickell is leaving to join BBC Radio Cambridgeshire. Also, Rony Robinson moves to lunchtime, whilst Bob Ballard has extended his ‘drivetime’ show by one hour.
Talking about the new breakfast show, Station Editor Gary Keown said: “It’s an exciting time for the station and Toby’s success and broad appeal makes him an ideal choice for our brand new Breakfast Show.
“We’re also looking to offer a new and exciting range of features across other new shows seven days a week to respond to our audience needs.”
Toby Foster said: “I’m really looking forward to the new format. We want to reflect what people are talking about but most important of all I want to put a smile on people’s faces as they start their day.”
He adds: “The earlier starts will be a bit of a challenge but at least the mornings are about to get lighter and warmer.”
