Thrower in for Radio Solent

Debbie Thrower is to take turns helming the early breakfast show and the afternoon programme on BBC Radio Solent, she’ll sit in on breakfast from 13 August and then move to afternoons from the 31 August.

Both week long stints see Debbie returning to her roots as she read the news and help produce the breakfast show on Solent 25 years ago.

Since then she's fronted her own show on BBC Radio 2 on weekday afternoons and been a regular host on BBC Radio 4 programmes Sunday and Call Debbie Thrower.

"It's a bit of a shock to the system getting up for a 5am show start… but I'm really looking forward to being back," said Debbie, who most recently fronted the region's ITV evening news programme.

She added: "Radio was my first love and I have great affection for my old station. It will be terrific to be back behind the mic giving listeners, I hope, a bright and cheerful start to their day.”

Radio Solent's Managing Editor Chris Carnegy said: "I'm delighted to welcome Debbie back to BBC Radio Solent.

"I hope we'll hear more of her in the months ahead."
