Pete Morgan returns to Radio Stoke breakfast

BBC Radio Stoke is bringing back Pete Morgan to the weekday Breakfast show in the New Year.

Pete starts in January, replacing Stuart George and Charlotte Foster will move later in the day in the 4-6pm slot, whilst current drive presenter Tim Wedgwood will move to focus on digital multi-platform content.

Pete left Stoke to join BBC WM in 2012, after five years on the programme, during which time he won best breakfast show at the Gillards.

After starting out his career at Signal Radio, Pete was a presenter for Marcher Sound in Wrexham in the 90s before doing breakfast at Bournemouth station 2CR. He joined Galaxy 102.2 in 2001 to produce Dave Clarke’s breakfast show and then went on to spend five years producing Heart 100.7’s breakfast show with Ed James.

BBC Radio Stoke Managing Editor, Gary Andrews, said: “I am really excited that Pete has agreed to return. When I arrived, he had already agreed to move elsewhere and I was disappointed not to get chance to work with him for any length of time. That was nearly four years ago and I’m looking forward to hearing Pete re-establish the great relationship he had with our listeners. He has a great sense of humour and warmth. Alongside that he has the same interests as our listeners, but also the ability to challenge those in power.

Pete said: “This patch holds such special memories for me and, when I left, I always felt that my time with the people of Staffordshire and South Cheshire wasn’t quite finished. I decided that it was right to stop resisting the pull, and come back to BBC Radio Stoke”

Den Siegertsz (5-7am), Perry Spiller (10-1pm) and James Watt (1-4pm) will continue on their current weekday shows and are unaffected by the change.
