The Coast has hired producer Gabriella Incalza Kaplanova to join its breakfast show team of Mitch Johnson and Clare Woodling.
She joins from BANG Community Radio in Brent and is tasked with keeping content vibrant, topical and relevant.
The Coast programming director, John Clayton, comments: “We pride ourselves on programmes that are worthy of a national station. The Coast is ambitious and prepared to recruit the best in the business to deliver at the standard we require.
“The Coast Breakfast Show is a tightly produced programme that gives listeners a light, bright and informative start to their day. The show always acknowledges the intelligence and maturity of our audience, in line with the rest of our schedule,” he continued.
