The pair plan to make their way around scores of businesses, attractions and charities in the city to help promote local organisations.
The Quidem-owned station tell us Brody and Adam will be getting stuck in to different jobs to find out what makes the city ‘tick’ – including going on the beat with the police and joining traders at Coventry market.

Brody told RadioToday.co.uk: “The day we have planned is really going to show off what is really great about Coventry, we can’t wait to get out into the city and showcase what it has to offer and the hard work the local folk do. It’s an incredible city, and we want to shout about it”.
