Humphrys helps BBC Surrey

BBC Radio 4 Today presenter John Humphrys is helping to launch BBC Surrey's new breakfast show.

The flagship show is being taken over by Nick Wallis, a regular voice on BBC Radio 5 Live over the last three years, standing in for Richard Bacon and Stephen Nolan.

But Humphrys, in his capacity as the question master of BBC Two's Mastermind, puts Nick in the hot seat and fires questions on his specialist subject of Surrey and North East Hampshire.

"I couldn't believe it when John agreed to help out," said Nick.

"He is one of the industry's true greats. It's the best possible lift I could have hoped for ahead of launching the show."

Listeners will be able to hear the trail as the station prepares for the new show which starts on Tuesday 1 September 2009. The show will also be available live via the BBC iPlayer.

Nicci Holliday, Managing Editor of BBC Sussex and Surrey, said: "We are delighted that BBC Surrey is now available on the iPlayer, it gives us a huge opportunity share our great programming with a wider audience and to enhance the BBC services for our Surrey listeners.

"This is a really important time in the life of the station as we are working hard to develop our service for listeners in Surrey and the iPlayer development is crucial to this offering.

"Nick's new show is very much part of this and reaffirms our commitment to the BBC's journalism values and to providing the engaging radio we know our audience wants, a one-stop shop for everything you need at breakfast and a bit more!"
