2BR appoints Andrew Wright for afternoons

New Zealand born Andrew Wright is taking over the afternoon show on East Lancashire’s 99.8FM 2BR from today.

Andrew was most recently a presenter on More FM in Southland, Invercargill and admits when he applied for the job he didn’t know if it was a paid position: “I knew nothing about the station – I genuinely thought I wasn’t going to get paid,” says Andy.

“Then I get here and I realise this is actually a legitimate radio station, that is really quite good!”

2BR’s Programme Controller Gemma Baron says: “We’re really excited about having Andy on our Weekday Afternoon show. I’m sure he’ll be a hit with the listeners. His Kiwi accent and banter and charm are a breath of fresh air. I’m looking forward to the people of East Lancashire getting to know him and testing him out on the pronunciation of some of our local place names”.

Andrew adds he’s excited to get going: “I really should be more nervous, but I’m comfortable with it. There’s always some anxiousness that you’re going to be broadcasting to thousands of people who don’t know you, but then again, if they don’t like me I can always go home.”

Andrew Wright is on air 2pm – 7pm Monday to Friday and Saturday 12pm – 4pm on the UKRD station.
