James Cannon joins BBC Surrey Breakfast

BBC Radio Oxford Drivetime presenter James Cannon is joining BBC Surrey to host Breakfast from the beginning of April.

jamescannonThe former Gold breakfast jock began his career as a journalist working on newspapers and magazines. His radio career started at Chiltern Radio and GWR FM in Bristol.

He joined 95.8 Capital FM in the late 90s and after 10 years moved to Capital’s nationwide Gold Radio to host breakfast with Erika North.

In early 2011 James returned to his journalistic roots and currently presents drive time on BBC Radio Oxford.

James said: “I can’t wait to get started at BBC Surrey, I live in the county with my family and feel passionately about the local area. Surrey is a great place to live and I am excited to be taking on the breakfast show. I’ve had a fantastic time at BBC Radio Oxford and it’s been a real pleasure to part of such a talented team.”

Managing Editor Sara David: “I’m delighted that James is joining us. He is a talented and experienced presenter who knows the county like the back of his hand – and I think the BBC Surrey listeners will love him as their new breakfast presenter.”

James’ Drivetime show at BBC Radio Oxford is being taken over by David Prever, as RadioToday revealed yesterday.
