Changes at BBC Wales breakfast
BBC Radio Wales is changing its line-up for Good Morning Wales, as part of autumn schedule changes.
Felicity Evans and Oliver Hides, who have presented drivetime news programme Good Evening Wales for several years, will join current presenter Bethan Rhys Roberts.
They swap places with former Good Morning Wales host Sarah Dickins who will move to Good Evening Wales, which will continue to bring a full two-hour round-up of the day’s events, though starting slightly later than usual at 5pm.
A new ten-minute dedicated sports slot in the programme will be presented every evening at 6.30pm with Steve James, which on Thursdays, during the rugby season, will immediately precede Scrum V Radio.
Roy Noble’s weekday afternoon programme will be extends from two to three hours every weekday afternoon, from 2-5pm. Features, such as Wales at Work, Science Café and the Radio Wales Arts Show will move to a regular 7pm slot on weekdays.
The changes to the weekday schedule take place from September 6,
BBC Radio Wales Editor Steve Austins, said he was very excited by the new schedule: “Oliver and Felicity will bring that energy and vibrancy we know from Good Evening Wales to liven up listeners’ mornings, our extra sports round-up means the audience will be clued up in all aspects of Welsh sport, while we know Roy Noble fans will be thrilled to have an extra hour with their favourite every day. There’s never been a better time to tune in to Radio Wales.”
