Alfie gets Newcastle breakfast

BBC Radio Newcastle afternoon presenter Alfie Joey is to join Charlie Charlton to host the station's breakfast show, replacing Mike Parr.

Mike Parr is off to BBC Radio Cumbria, as reported over the weekend, giving afternoon Alfie a chance at the flagship show.

Alfie said: "I cannot wait. I'm looking forward to working with Charlie. It's exciting working with someone else and there's a chance to develop a real chemistry. It will be a challenge because there's a lot to think about, but it's going to be fun!"

Charlie, who is Gateshead born and bred, said: "Alfie is one of the most fascinating people I've met and, as a journalist in the North East, I've met an awful lot of people, so that's saying something! He's got a genuine warmth to him, he's a fantastic broadcaster and he tells great stories!"

Radio Newcastle Managing Editor Andrew Robson said: "I am delighted that Alfie and Charlie are taking on the challenge of waking up the North East every day. They are two extremely talented North East characters and I'm really looking forward to hearing them on air together."

The search is now on for a new Radio Newcastle afternoon presenter to fill Alfie Joey's show.

Alfie and Charlie will also be covering the breakfast show for several weeks over the coming months when Mike is on holiday.
