Amazing Radio appoints new breakfast host

Ruth Barnes is taking over Amazing Radio’s breakfast show next week.

She currently presents The Other Woman on Sundays at 7pm for the station, and has held regular spots on BBC 6 Music.

Speaking of the new slot, Ruth said “Taking on the Amazing Breakfast Show is a fantastic opportunity to get my teeth into daytime, mainstream radio. Well, as mainstream as we get on amazing. Our Breakfast show would be a specialist new music show on any other network. That’s what makes us unique, our fantastic new music playlist, live sessions and a sweep of what people are sharing on the web… It’s going to be a seriously relaxed and informative way to start your day.”

Amazing Radio’s Programme Director Matt Jamison said: “Ruth is the perfect fit for breakfast on Amazing Radio. She’ll satisfy people’s hunger for new music whilst providing a sunny start to the day. She’ll also bring that specialist music knowledge to people’s breakfast time without all the po-faced beard scratching that’s often ascribed to music afficionados. I’m confident that Ruth will provide the best new music breakfast of any breakfast show anywhere in the world.”

Ruth has been praised by The Guardian and the Association of Independent Music for her unwavering support for emerging music, specifically for female musicians through her The Other Woman blog and radio show. The show began on London’s Resonance FM which lead to a weekly spot on Tom Robinson’s Introducing show on BBC 6 Music as his ‘Girl Music Guru’. She then landed a Sunday evening show on Amazing Radio, showcasing the best of female artists and female fronted bands. Ruth has also reported for BBC Radio 2, BBC 5 Live and BBC World Service.

Ruth will continue to present The Other Woman on Sundays at 7pm on Amazing Radio. The station recently left DAB and is only currently available online.
