Jon Kirby, Programme Controller for Real Radio North East said, “I’m delighted to welcome Gary back home to Real Radio. He is a Real North East character, who knows and loves every inch of the area. He’s one of us and a naturally funny guy. Together Gary and Lisa are a terrific blend and are also great friends. I have no doubt that Gary and Lisa will be the most talked about Breakfast Show in the North East.”

Gary said, “I had a job as a coal man lined up in Trimdon, but it fell through at the last minute, so I’m going to the Real Radio Breakfast Show with Lisa for now, until I can get a proper milk round; champion.”

Lisa Shaw said, “Oh no, not him again!”

The Real Radio Breakfast Show with Gary and Lisa will launch at 6am, on Monday 15th March.
