Solent splits for new Dorset breakfast show
BBC Radio Solent is to offer a local breakfast show for Dorset, on 103.8FM from July 8th, hosted by Alina Jenkins.
Breakfast in Dorset will cover areas including Weymouth, Portland, Dorchester, Wareham, Blandford Forum, Wool and many of the villages in between.
From 6:30am each weekday, the BBC says they’ll put decision-makers, bosses and politicians in the spotlight to get answers to the important questions audiences want answered.
Local travel news and weather information will also feature.
Alina said: “I’ve been with BBC Radio Solent for 12 years working on early breakfast, afternoons, news and also presenting for both the regional and national weather teams. But I’m relishing this new challenge and incredibly excited to be involved.
“Dorset is an area my family and I have always loved and we are very much looking forward to living and working in this beautiful county. I’m working with a brilliant team and we are eager to get out and about and find the stories that matter to Dorset residents. I won’t just be in the studio either – I hope to get around the county as much as I can too. Whatever your story, we want to hear it.”
