BBC Radio Lincolnshire reporter Scott Dalton is taking over the breakfast show on the station, replacing Rod Whiting on Monday April 29.
Scott, who was previously the station’s Boston District Reporter and cover jock, will be joined by new Breakfast Reporter Leigh Milner. And Rod Whiting will now be setting his alarm clock a little later as he takes up a new role as a District Producer.
Scott said: “I’m thrilled to be taking over BBC Radio Lincolnshire’s Breakfast Show. I’m a Lincolnshire lad and love the county so it’ll be a great honour and a privilege to help Lincolnshire wake up each morning.
Scott was nominated for the BBC’s Gillards Awards for Reporter of the Year in 2004 and the previous year won a Sony Bronze Award as part of the BBC Radio Lincolnshire team’s coverage of Boston United’s promotion to the Football League.
Before joining BBC Radio Lincolnshire he worked in newspapers – mainly at the Boston Standard and Boston Target.
He said: “I have continued to cover Boston United for BBC Radio Lincolnshire to the present day but with my Breakfast appointment, the match on April 27 will be my last covering for the station – although I’ll probably pop up supporting them from the terraces as a fan next season for some games.”
