Former Isle of Wight Radio presenter Stuart McGinley is returning to the Island as the station goes all-local for the first time in a decade.
Stuart is part of a new fully local line-up, which includes Heather McCallum in the evening, Simon Clark on lates and Omar at the weekend.
Stuart said, “It’s great to be back at Isle of Wight Radio, it really feels like home. It’s great to work with such an experienced and professional team of broadcasters who really care about the Island.
“I have only been back a week and already I am amazed at the volume of calls we get daily from listeners. I’m having a ball.”
Programme Controller and Breakfast Show Presenter Paul Topping said, “It is a really exciting time for Isle of Wight Radio. We are making the station much more fun and local to listen to during the day, and the audience reaction has been immense. We are putting local broadcasters back on the station and have already extended our local programming by over 34 hours a week.”
“While other stations are cutting back using more national network programming we are committing to a more local sound. We are lucky enough to have such a great wealth of local talent on the Isle of Wight and I am going to ensure it does not go to waste.”
