Manchester gets Cold Feet

Actor and comedian John Thomson is to present his own show on BBC Radio Manchester.

The change is one of several to the station's schedules, which also sees the departure of Terry Christian from weekdays after two years at the station.

Cold Feet and Fast Show star Thomson will front a regular Saturday slot between 11am-1pm from April 12th. He has guest presented at the station a number of times before and is this week co-presenting the Breakfast show.

Thomson's appointment comes as the station rejigs its early evening and weekend schedules with new programmes and presenters.

Other changes, which come into effect from next Monday, will see Becky Want’s weekday show extended an hour from 2pm-5pm and the nightly news and sports show, Manchester Now, with Steve Saul running from 5pm-6pm.

Sam Walker takes over from Phil Wood on the late show, Sunday-Thursday 10pm-1am, while Andy Crane will present a new programme on location in Salford Quays, every Sunday between midday and 2pm.

Terry Christian leaves his weekday show but will continue to present Manchester Music every Saturday evening.

Managing Editor, John Ryan, says: “Bringing John on board and tweaking our schedules is about moving forward and keeping things fresh and lively for our regular listeners, while encouraging new ones to try us with programmes that are engaging and relevant. “
