Kath Melandri has joined BBC Essex to host a new weekly phone-in show.
Kath has 20 years’ experience working in BBC Local Radio. The majority of that time was spent in various roles at BBC Radio London. During that time she’s produced the Jon Gaunt phone-in as well as the Danny Baker Breakfast show. She also spent five years co-presenting and producing the Drivetime show alongside Eddie Nestor.
Kath says: “BBC Essex listeners love to talk. They’re entertaining and opinionated so I’m looking forward to getting stuck in. The new show will put those listeners at the front and centre with their thoughts about the biggest stories, no matter how serious or funny. I can’t wait to hear what they want to talk about on a Saturday lunchtime.”
The new show started on January 6th and airs each Saturday from 12pm till 2pm.
