BBC Radio York relocates to Hull during floods
Due to recent severe weather conditions in Yorkshire, BBC Radio York has been broadcasting from the studios of BBC Radio Humberside for the last couple of days.
York’s presenters and producers, including Julia Lewis, Jonathan Cowap and Phil White have been based at Queens Gardens HQ in Hull after floods at York’s Stonebow telephone exchange knocked out lines to and from their studios in the city.
A video message on BBC Radio Humberside’s Facebook page shows the team from York in Hull, saying: “They’ve been an official emergency service providing listeners with information at a very difficult time for many people in North Yorkshire”.
BBC Radio York is having to use a temporary Hull phone number on-air for listener interaction.
The BBC local station is offering extra programmes and content in reaction to the weather situation. Other stations covering the area, including UKRD station Minster FM is also broadcasting and posting extra information about the floods.
