New breakfast show at BBC Radio Suffolk

Former presenter Terry Baxter is returning to BBC Radio Suffolk after a decade to take over as host of the breakfast show from next month.

Current breakfast presenter Mark Murphy moves to mid-mornings, replacing James Hazell who’ll be part of the station’s weekend line-up.

Born and raised in Ipswich, Terry was previously a presenter and football match commentator at BBC Radio Suffolk. He left the station in 2001 to become Director of Communications at Ipswich Town Football Club.

Terry says: “I feel incredibly privileged to have been asked to present BBC Radio Suffolk’s breakfast programme and to follow in the footsteps of both Chris Opperman and Mark Murphy. Both have set the bar high for us to try to follow, but I know that the team and I are ready to rise to that challenge.”

Mark Murphy – who has been at the stations since launch in 1990 – will move to the 9am-12.30pm from 5 September, after 11 years on breakfast.

Managing Editor Peter Cook told “Terry’s an accomplished broadcaster with a big personality, an in-depth knowledge of Suffolk and a great sense of fun. I’d like to thank Mark for all that he’s done on the Breakfast Show over the past 11 years, the fantastic profile he’s created for both himself and the radio station, his award winning track-record and his ability to connect with our audience. I think those are all qualities which he’ll take to the mid-morning show where I’ve no doubt he’ll be a big hit.”
