BBC Three Counties Radio is to have its biggest schedule revamp in 13 years from next Monday, including changes to the breakfast show with Stephen Rhodes.
Jonathan Vernon-Smith is returning to the station to host a lunch-time show. Plus, in a move likely to upset some listeners, all sports programming will be moved to AM which the station believes will "give the best coverage of all types of sport in the area".
Station editor Mark Norman said: "Over the last eight months, I've been grateful for the feedback which we've received from listeners.
"That feedback has proved there is a demand for a wider choice of listening both at weekends and during the evenings and that schedule changes will reflect the views of the majority of people who have contacted the station with their thoughts and ideas about what we should be doing in the future."
