Afternoon drive presenter Christopher Dean has admitted to the stunt he and programme controller Gemma Baron played on listeners.
The news made a couple of local newspapers who reported on the stunt as fact.
The station has admitted the news today, also announcing Paris Munro is joining to host the drive show.
Paris has just finished university, but is already station voice at The Hits and a volunteer assistant producer at Bauer City 3, and has also covered shows at Gaydio in Manchester.
After a long three years of uni, I have finally landed myself a job. As of Monday I am 2BR's Drive Time Presenter #LivingTheDream
