Star Radio NE jock Ditchy joins Silk 106.9

Former Star Radio North East and Real Radio North West presenter David Ditchfield has joined Silk 106.9 for breakfast.

Ditchy, as he’s known on-air, started at the Macclesfield local radio station today replacing Andy Bailey who has been there for a decade.

“Having just celebrated 10 years with Silk 106.9 I found myself looking (and listening!) back to all the great times I’d enjoyed and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to bid farewell to that chapter of my life and move on to something new. I had a genuine feeling that I’d given the gig my very best and it was time for someone else to have a crack,” Andy told RadioToday.

Andy was at the station when it won Sony Gold Station of the Year (under 300,000) in 2008 and has had several roles over the last decade including Programme Controller and Group Head of Localness when it was owned by TLRC.

When asked by RadioToday why he’s left, Andy replied: “Nothing particularly juicy I’m afraid, I’m just looking for a brand new challenge to fire me up and get me excited again. I’ve got nothing in the pipeline, so of anyone is looking for a 30-something passionate, creative programmer/presenter then let me know!”

“Ditchy in the Morning” started today (Monday 4th) and will air Monday to Friday 6am to 10am. He recently left Star Radio in the North East along with MD Mark Reason and PD Robin Banks after a recent repositioning of the station.
