Original 106 has hired former Northsound One and Two presenter Craig McDonald as part of a new look to afternoons.
He’ll present the weekday 4 – 7pm Drivetime show from 24th August. He joins the station on 3rd August to cover mid-mornings for a few weeks until he starts his new show.
Craig saidL “I love radio, I love great music, and I love our local area – so I’m really excited about this perfect opportunity for me to get my teeth in to my brand new show on Original 106”.
There’s also a new show from 1 – 4pm presented by John Mcruvie as part of the new look to afternoons on the station.
Original’s programme controller Martin Ingram said: “We want to capitalise on the successes we’ve achieved in the last few years, and I’m looking forward to welcoming Craig to our team. I’m sure audiences in the north east will love his wit, humour, local knowledge as he plays just great songs on his new afternoon Drivetime show.”
