Wiggy returns to The Wave

Just weeks after leaving Real Radio after 8 years, presenter Steve Wiggins is going back on air with South Wales rival The Wave.

He'll join the UTV-owned Swansea station from next weekend, marking a return to place he started out in radio.

Wiggy told RadioToday.co.uk he was 'thrilled and delighted' to be re-joining The Wave. "They are very passionate dedicated people who make great radio," he said. "I've made some wonderful friends there and am looking forward to talking to them all again. Big thanks to Steve Barnes and Helen Bowden for giving me this fabulous opportunity. I can't wait to get started on Saturday May 14th. Game on!!"

Programme Director Steve Barnes told us: "I'm proud to be bringing Wiggy back to The Wave. I know he can make great radio for us, and already I've had scores of messages thanking me for getting him back on air. He's an amazingly popular presenter with lots of dedicated listeners."

He added: "At UTV we're very passionate to be local and Steve 'Wiggy' Wiggins fits that perfectly. He gets under the skin of listeners and hooks them in."
