Bishop gets WM weekend show

The Bishop of Birmingham is joining BBC WM to host the evening show each Saturday, taking over from Marverine Cole. The weekly programme, to be known as The Joe Aldred Show, will be a topical discussion programme for the African and Caribbean communities of Birmingham and the Black Country.

Bishop Joe is a well known local and national personality, with knowledge of the local area and its diverse communities. He was born in Jamaica and arrived in England as a teenager.

Jeremy Pollock, acting-Managing Editor, BBC WM, says: "Joe's very passionate about the African and Caribbean community — he's got a lot to say, and we're delighted he's going to be saying it on BBC WM."

Bishop Dr Joe Aldred says of the new show: "Against a background of so much negativity that has attached itself to the Black community; I view this as a great opportunity to contribute to community empowerment and progress by dealing week-by-week with the issues that are at the heart of the African and Caribbean community.

"I hope that the whole of Birmingham and the Black Country will tune in every week and interact with what I believe will be a great programme."

The Joe Aldred Show on BBC WM begins on Saturday 1 September from 8pm.
