Ex-Caroline DJ gets breakfast

BBC Essex is changing its weekday schedule to move drivetime presenter Ray Clark from drivetime to breakfast. The former Radio Caroline DJ told RadioToday.co.uk he is looking forward to the challenge of presenting an all speech mix of local news and talking points.

"I’m an Essex lad and this is the job I’ve always wanted," says Ray who lives in Burnham.

Other moves see the current Breakfast pairing, Etholle George and John Hayes, being split up and given new shows. Etholle will present a new lunchtime sequence and John moves into the Drivetime slot.

Ian Wyatt is the new voice of BBC Essex’s weekend Breakfast shows and former gardening presenter, Ken Crowther, is given a new 3 hour show on Saturday morning at 9. His extended show and new brief sees the station celebrating the “natural” side of life in Essex.

“We’ll be offering gardening advice, highlighting Essex producers of everything from organic spuds to oysters and playing great music,” promises Ken.

Two new names joining the station are 16 year old Mike Bromfield and Ollie Winiberg. They will become the BBC’s youngest presenters when they co-host a new show promoting unsigned Essex bands on Friday’s at 6 PM.

BBC Essex’s new Managing Editor, Gerald Main said: "BBC Essex is a successful station with a strong team. I’m looking for us to be even more relevant to the lives of our audience and to have much more fun on-air,” says the boss who joined the station in March.
