Claire Carter moves to BBC Somerset Breakfast

BBC Radio Gloucestershire lunch time presenter Claire Carter is moving to BBC Somerset to host the breakfast show.

Claire will replace Emma Britton who has a new breakfast show to present on BBC Radio Bristol.

Nick Bull, Managing Editor of BBC Somerset, said: “I’m delighted that Claire is joining BBC Somerset to present our new Breakfast Show. I have worked with Claire for many years – she’s a terrific presenter with bags of personality and energy. I can’t wait for her to start waking up the Somerset in the New Year.

“Naturally, I’m very sad to see Emma go – she’s been at the heart of Somerset life on air and off air for many years. We wish Emma all the very best as she takes up this fantastic new opportunity to present the Breakfast Show on our sister station BBC Radio Bristol”.

Claire Carter said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining the team at BBC Somerset. I’ll be leaving Gloucestershire with a heavy heart but I can’t wait to get stuck into Breakfast – so to speak!”

Emma Britton said: “I’m sad to be leaving BBC Somerset because the listeners & my colleagues feel like family – I actually started at the station as a contributor way back in 2003! It’s the right time to move on to the next chapter of my radio career and I know that Claire will be an amazing ambassador for BBC Somerset, so I’m leaving the Breakfast Show in the best hands!”

Claire started at the BBC in Gloucestershire nearly ten years ago as a trainee Sports Reporter. From answering phones to producing programmes she’s worked her way up to become a full, mainstream presenter on BBC Radio Gloucestershire spending the last year on Lunchtimes and as a regular stand in for Breakfast.
