BBC Radio Derby is up for it

BBC Radio Derby's presenters have been challenged to do something new and positive in the New Year.

The Radio Derby I'm Up For It campaign, which kicks off this Friday, 18 December, will see presenters appearing at a local shopping centre.

Some of the challenges being taken up by Radio Derby's presenters include afternoon presenter Ed George planning to become a soap star, mid-morning presenter Aleena Naylor wanting to walk the 55-mile Derwent Valley Heritage Way and Sunday breakfast presenter Johnny Kinch aspiring to take up the guitar.

Other challenges include breakfast presenter Shane O'Connor giving blood, Phil Trow learning to swim butterfly, Colin Bloomfield running a 10K race and Andy Potter wanting to be an opera singer.

Gary Andrews, Assistant Editor, Radio Derby, says: "Our presenters are being ambitious with their challenges, hopefully that will inspire our listeners to set themselves a pledge to achieve something positive for themselves in 2010. We will be offering lots of ideas and advice on-air in the New Year, so it will be fun to hear how everyone gets on."
