Capital FM breakfast team join Metro

Metro Radio has poached North East presenters Steve and Karen from 105-106 Capital FM to replace Tony Horne at breakfast.

They’ll make the move in Spring 2012 once their contract at Global Radio ends.

The news was confirmed to by Bauer, after much speculation on Twitter and the local press.

Metro Radio Programme Director Chris Pegg said: “Steve and Karen are extremely talented, and I have always admired their breakfast show. It’s fantastic that they are joining Metro Radio the station they grew up listening to.

“They really love the North East, having both grown up on Tyneside. Their on air chemistry and ability to deliver a locally relevant, fun based show gives me every confidence that they are the perfect fit for Metro Radio at breakfast. I can’t wait for them to start.”

Brian Moore has been covering the flagship show since Tony Horne left without explanation in July, after six years.
