The Jo Show – BRMB's big breakfast show signing less than a year ago has been missing from her show for the last few weeks, and is moving to drivetime next month.
A message on the station's website says duo Foxy and Giuliano now host weekday breakfast, and Jo will start on afternoons when her new producer arrives in November.
Last November, David Lloyd, Group Programme and Marketing Director for BRMB owner Orion Media said: “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 Russell joined from Trent FM, and took over from long time breakfast show host Elliot Webb.
But now, commenting on Jo moving to drivetime, that station says: “What you may not yet know is that she’s going to be joined by a new presenter, who’s great by the way, called ‘Sparky’.
“He’s not able to be with us until November – and Producer Dean who used to chip in a lot on the Jo Show has now begun to work on The Sanctuary – so Jo (who likes someone to chat to!) is taking a break for a few weeks until Sparky arrives.”
