BBC Radio Ulster in Northern Ireland is making a few presenter changes to its news and current affairs programmes.

From Monday 31 August 2009, Wendy Austin, Seamus McKee, David Dunseith, Mark Carruthers, and Karen Patterson will each take on new presenting roles within the station's existing news and current affairs programmes Good Morning Ulster, Talkback, Evening Extra and Seven Days.

Karen Patterson and Mark Carruthers will join Conor Bradford on breakfast, Wendy Austin will front Talkback each lunchtime, and Radio Ulster's drive time news programme Evening Extra will now be presented by Seamus McKee from 5 till6:30pm.

In addition, David Dunseith will now front the station's weekend news programme Seven Days every Sunday from 12noon to 1pm, starting Sunday 6th September.

Peter Johnston, Director, BBC Northern Ireland, says: "These programmes remain very popular with audiences here in Northern Ireland. This puts us in a good position to give this experienced team of presenters the chance to try new things so that we can plan ahead for the future.

"We want to ensure that we continue to provide our audience with the high quality news and current affairs programmes they expect from us and we hope that giving new voices to these news and current affairs programmes will enhance our listeners' experience of them even further."
