Anne Diamond is taking over the weekday mid-morning show on BBC Radio Berkshire whilst current host Henry Kelly takes over her weekend show.
In addition, Debbie McGee will present a weekend show each Sunday from 9am till Midday.
Marianne Bell, Editor of BBC Berkshire, says: "Anne has been entertaining audiences in Berkshire with intelligent speech-based local radio on a Saturday for six months. The audience feedback has been brilliant and I'm thrilled that she is now joining our weekday output.
"Anne may have a high-profile career but her natural curiosity in local life, her sense of humour, and her openness to share her own experiences of family, work and home, makes her a perfect fit for BBC Radio Berkshire."
