New programme schedule at Star Radio North East

It’s all change at Star Radio North East as Wes Stakes joins the UKRD station to host the breakfast show from June 27th.

Wes will replace Tim Lichfield, also the station’s Content Controller, who is moving to drivetime. Craig Andrews, current drivetime host will move to mid-mornings replacing John Clayton who’s off to do the Wind Down Zone.

Wes has worked for UKRD before at YCR as well as Pulse 1 and various Bauer stations and has been presenting weekends at Star Radio.

Star Radio’s MD, John Clayton told Radio Today, “Given how the station has progressed over the last 2 years, the time is now right to make this important change”. He went on to say, “Wes is a natural Breakfast presenter and the changes in the schedule will allow Tim Lichfield (current Breakfast presenter & Content Controller) to concentrate and focus on helping the business build further and future proof its’ position and role within the local community across County Durham, Darlington & North Yorkshire.”

Tim commented: “Wes has been steadily increasing our weekend figures and has a great connection with our audience already, so he’ll be an asset to the team. Plus, I get a lie in.”

Star Radio North East is also getting a new logo and sound, which will be revealed in the coming weeks, so watch this space!
