Levy networks to Lincolnshire

BBC Radio Humberside's lunchtime show with Peter Levy is to commence broadcasting on neighbouring Radio Lincolnshire, RadioToday.co.uk can reveal.

The BBC insist no jobs will be lost, and each station will continue to opt to their own local news, sport and information bulletins

The Peter Levy show runs from 12pm till 2pm, with Melvyn Prior's show moving to the morning slot and Nicola Gilroy will host a new mid-afternoon show from 2pm till 4pm.

Judy Theobald will leave the weekday schedule.

Peter is well known in the area already, being the evening television news anchor on Look North.

Head of Region for the BBC, David Jennings told RadioToday.co.uk: "We think that extending the show onto BBC Lincolnshire is a great way of delivering the impact of Peter's programme to people across East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire while maintaining and developing the strength of our journalism in both areas."

A BBC Spokesperson said: "There is no reduction in staffing or resources at BBC Lincolnshire."
