Martin Kelner to takeover Radio Yorkshire

Former BBC Radio Leeds presenter Martin Kelner is joining DAB station Radio Yorkshire.

Martin will host two special shows with music, features and comedy, one on April 14th and the other on May 5th.

“I’m delighted to be back on the radio,” said Martin. “Having been given free rein over playlist and speech content, I can’t wait to treat listeners to the ever-popular mix of psycho-garage punkabilly music & news features from outlying areas of Yorkshire like Bishop’s Stortford and Guatemala”.

Martin left BBC Radio Leeds last month, describing it as ‘the most charmless sacking he has ever suffered’.

Director of Broadcasting at Radio Yorkshire Sam Brydges said: “This is a new direction for us. It’s a show format we’ve wanted to try for a while and now we’ve found the perfect person to kick it off. Martin is one of the finest, funniest voices in the country and we are delighted to have him on Radio Yorkshire.”

The Martin Kelner Takeover will be broadcast 7-10pm on Thursday 14th April and Thursday 5th May.
