New breakfast duo at BBC Coventry and Warwickshire

Trish Adudu and Jo Tidman are taking over the breakfast show on BBC Coventry and Warwickshire, replacing Shane O’Connor.

Shane has been on the morning show for five years and posted this short message on his Facebook fan page today: “So long and thanks for all the fish ……”

Trish Adudu won Best Programme Presenter at the internal BBC Local Radio Awards just last week for her work on the station, and will be partnered with Jo Tidman – a newsreader and presenter at BBC WM.

Trish Adudu said: “I’m totally thrilled to be given the opportunity to present the breakfast show on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire. It’s a huge challenge and different to anything I’ve done before, because it’s right here in my home city.”

Jo Tidman added: “I am delighted to be returning to my roots and proud to be part of the new Coventry and Warwickshire breakfast show. I know Trish well and can’t wait to get going.”

Paul Marriott is covering on the show till the new year.

BBC Coventry & Warwickshire’s Managing Editor, Andrew Bowman, said: “I am really excited to announce our new line-up. Trish and Jo are award winning presenters and journalists who will be putting their heart and soul into the programme. Trish is from Coventry and Jo from Warwickshire, so we can expect some lively discussions as well as expert local knowledge.”

David Jennings, Head of Regional and Local Programmes for BBC West Midlands said: “I am pleased that these two talented presenters will
be together in one show. We think the combination of personalities will appeal to our listeners across the patch. We’d like to thank Shane for his work on the breakfast show, and we wish him well for the future.”
