Breakfast changes at BBC Radio Cambridge

As BBC Radio Cambridge starts a new county-wide breakfast show, a local station is shouting about its local presence.

Cambridge 105 says people in the city don’t want to hear about places which are over 40 miles, and will continue to broadcast from the city centre.

At the BBC, Jeremy Sallis’ Cambridge breakfast show has been axed as the Peterborough host Paul Stainton goes county-wide. Jeremy takes on a new afternoon show instead.

Managing Editor David Harvey told the local paper: “We’ve invested more journalism and technology into one breakfast programme that will break exclusive stories, challenge those in power and seek to represent all that’s positive, exciting, creative and innovative about this amazing county of ours and Paul Stainton’s new show will deliver all this and more to our audience.”

However, community radio presenters Neil Whiteside and Lottie Booth are flying the local flag. “When you live or work in a city like Cambridge you don’t want to hear about places that are over 40 miles away,” says Neil. “We’re lucky to have a great bunch of listeners, with plenty of ideas, and they’re right here in Cambridge.”

The rest of the daytime line-up at BBC Radio Cambridge stays the same.
