Anna Foster joins BBC Newcastle mornings

North East radio presenter Anna Foster is to join BBC Newcastle to host the mid-morning show, replacing Jonathan Miles.

Anna, who was most recently presenting breakfast on Magic before it networked, will be on-air each weekday from 10am till 12pm. She began her radio career in 1996 at Stray FM in Harrogate before joining the GNR Breakfast Show with John Foster. The pair went on to present TFM breakfast in 1998, with Anna moving on to present evenings and then afternoons.

She moved onto join Metro Radio in Newcastle in 2003 and she presented Breakfast with Brian Moore and latterly Tony Horne. She switched back to Magic Breakfast as a solo presenter in 2012 until 2014.

Since then Anna has been presenting on Made in Tyne and Wear TV but leaves for BBC Newcastle.

Anna said: “I’m really looking forward to talking about life in the North East, every part of it – all the things we love and how to cope with the bits that get in the way! We’ll also have some great music to get everyone through the morning too.”

Acting managing editor of BBC Newcastle Doug Morris said: “Anna’s been a familiar voice at breakfast for many years and welcomes the shift to a later slot where she’ll be able to explore what really matters to the audience. As a busy mother of three she understands what life is like for listeners and their families.”

Jonathan Miles previously presented the mid-morning programme on BBC Newcastle for seven years. He is moving to present Songs from the Shows on Sundays from 12 April.
