Local man Jeff Diack is taking over the 10am to 2pm show on Northsound 1.
Jeff first joined the station at the age of 17 from Aberdeen College with an HNC in Radio Broadcasting. He used his lecturer contacts to land weekend work at the station where he first cut his teeth. His first show was the Northsound 1 evening show.
After a couple of years, Jeff moved to Forth 1 for the late night show then moved to Cairo, Egypt to present on Nile FM’s breakfast show.
Commenting on his appointment, Jeff said: “I’ve landed my perfect job. It’s so exciting to be back at Northsound 1, the station where it all started for me.
“I love working in radio and to be back in my home town, presenting on this iconic station which I grew up listening to is a dream come true.
“The listeners in the North-east really are fantastic. I want to make sure I’m bringing them the best music for their workday, great chat and the latest news on what’s happening across Aberdeen and the ‘shire.”
“Radio allows you to speak to your audience directly, you’re in the car with someone or in someone’s home or office. It allows you to connect with individuals in a unique way.
“I’m so excited to be working alongside such a great team at Northsound 1 and I can’t wait to get stuck in!”
John Slater, Content Director Northsound 1 said: “On behalf of everyone here at Northsound 1 we would like to welcome Jeff to the fold. He knows the station and the audience really well so we know he will be an excellent addition.
“He’s a born and bred Aberdonian who grew up listening to the station so we couldn’t think of a better fit. Welcome back Jeff!”
