Former Galaxy Yorkshire and Hallam FM presenter Dixie is joining GMG Radio to host the drivetime show on Real Radio Yorkshire, replacing David Ditchfield.
Whilst Ditchy left a couple of weeks ago to join the breakfast team at Century Radio in the north west, Barrow-in-Furness born Dixie, real name David Dixon, will take over the Yorkshire show on May 28th.
Dixie lives in Rotherham with his wife Lynn and eight-month-old son Billy. He said: “I can’t wait to get stuck into the new show. It’s great to be staying in Yorkshire as I love it here and I love chatting to the great Yorkshire public. I’m looking forward to being part of a strong new line up for Real Radio."
Tony McKenzie, programme director at Real Radio, added: “It’s fantastic to get a voice that’s familiar to Yorkshire onto Real Radio. Dixie will be a great addition to the team here.”
