Real Radio XS is bringing back the station’s first breakfast show presenter Steve Berry to the station.
He’ll return to the breakfast show on January 6th as Mike Sweeney, who replaced Berry three years ago, leaves to join BBC Radio Manchester.
Real XS Programme Controller Mark Matthews told RadioToday: “Sweeney’s boots were always going to be hard to fill but Steve was always a big hit with the Real XS family – it’ll be fantastic to have him back”.
Steve, who was known as Steve Berry from Bury – one of the towns in the station’s TSA – is looking forward to his return: “I saw a bright light in the sky and it drew me back to Manchester. I couldn’t be happier to return to the city, the music and the listeners I love”.
Real XS was known as Rock Radio when it launched in 2008 and is expected to be sold by new owners Global Radio in the coming weeks.
