Former Trent FM and Absolute Radio presenter Jo Russell has been hired for the flagship breakfast show on the new BRMB.
The station, which is currently under construction, recently let Elliott Webb go from the peak show after nine years.
David Lloyd, Group Programme and Marketing Director for BRMB owner Orion Media says: "Jo is, without any doubt, one of the UK’s leading broadcasters and we are delighted that she has agreed to join us. Waking up in Birmingham to Jo will be quite special – and certainly worth checking out later this year. Jo’s arrival is yet another plank in our strategy to restore BRMB to its former glory as one of the UK’s most entertaining radio stations".
Jo has won dozens of awards whilst at Trent FM with co-host Twiggy including the best breakfast show at the Sony Radio Academy Awards 2008. She starts on December 7th.
