Monk joins Premier Christian Radio for Lent

A well-known Benedictine monk will co-present Premier Christian Radio’s ‘Inspirational Breakfast’ for the six Mondays of Lent.

Fr Christopher Jamison, former Abbot of Worth Abbey in West Sussex, became a familiar figure following the BBC 2 documentary series ‘The Monastery’. He is also the author of two books; ‘Finding Sanctuary’ – Monastic Steps for Everyday Life, and ‘Finding Happiness’ – Monastic Steps for a Fulfilling Life.

The Australian-born monk will co-host breakfast with resident presenter John Pantry, who said today: “Fr Christopher will be the first monk to present a programme on Premier and I look forward to sharing the show with him and our morning listeners.”

As the director of the National Office for Vocation, an office of the Roman Catholic Church, since 2010, Fr. Christopher is responsible for creating a culture of vocation throughout the country.

He added: “I love radio, both to listen and to broadcast, but this will be my first experience of presenting on radio. I’m really looking forward to the opportunity to engage with Premier’s listeners who are doing such a fantastic job sustaining this wonderful station.”

Premier Christian Radio is currently negotiating with Arqiva to stay on the national D1 digital radio multiplex.

His first show is tomorrow, Monday 23rd February 2015.
