Bus named after radio host Chris Copsey

A Brighton & Hove bus has been named after Sussex radio legend Chris Copsey who died unexpectedly last year at the age of 52.

Chris’s family and friends gathered at Brighton racecourse last week to see the new bus named after him. He was a fixture of the Sussex airwaves for nearly 30 years, being part of the launch team of Southern Sound in 1983. He’d most recently been working for Media Sound Holdings’ stations Splash FM, Bright FM, Sovereign FM and Arrow FM.

Chris’s widow, Yvonne Copsey, launched one of Brighton & Hove’s Hybrid double deck buses, which will operate on the busy cross city route 7 from Brighton Marina to Hove’s George Street. She said: “I’m delighted we have enabled Chris Copsey’s name to live on in the city on one of our buses”. Roger French, Managing Director of Brighton & Hove said.

“He was such a great broadcaster and a great friend of the bus company throughout his broadcasting career right from the early days of Southern Sound.”
