Charles returns to Lancashire breakfast

Former Central Radio breakfast presenter Rob Charles has returned to the breakfast slot in Preston by joining The Bee.

The Central licence was bought by The Bee just a few months ago, and now operates as one station covering Blackburn and Preston.

Rob replaces Richie who has left the station after less than 12 months.

Daytime on the station has also changed, it is now hosted by 2BR presenter John Isherwood, having previously been a block of non-stop music.

Rob has previously worked at a variety of stations across the North West including KFM, Signal Radio, Rock FM, Century 105, Magic 999 and Central Radio. Speaking exclusively to Radio Today, he told us: “It’s a great feeling to be broadcasting to my old patch, and I’m really looking forward to helping The Bee continue its growth in Preston, Blackburn and the surrounding areas. There’s a real feeling of excitement about the station, and I hope I can help the team here grow the Bee even more!”

John said: “I’ve been a part of the team here at Accrington for over a year, so I already know it’s a great place to work – part of the best company in the UK in fact. I’m well chuffed to secure a permanent slot of my own, I just hope I don’t get the station name wrong after being on 2BR for so long!”

Speaking about the appointment, Managing Director of the two UKRD stations Simon Brierley said: “I’m delighted to welcome Rob to the team and be able to offer John a regular slot on our schedules. These appointments demonstrate our commitment to growing The Bee in its marketplace, and developing the talent of our people.”
