Steps’ Lisa joins UK radio duo in Dubai
Dubai-based Steps singer Lisa Scott-Lee is joining the drivetime team at one of the city’s radio stations.
She’s teaming up with former GCap presenters Tom Bushell and Dan Marsh on the Sunday to Thursday 4-8pm slot on Dubai 92 in the UAE.
It’s understood Lisa will continue to be a part of the show during the Steps reunion tour later this year, providing backstage reports for the station.
Lisa, who has lived in Dubai for almost a year with husband Johnny Shentall and their two children, has previously been a guest on the Tom & Dan show.
She said “I’m so excited to be joining Tom and Dan on DUBAI 92 as I’m a big fan of the station and it will be great fun working with the boys!”
Tom and Dan told us: “We’ve been working together as a duo for over two years, and took over the drive time show in September 2010. This is another great move for the show and for the station. We can’t wait to get Lisa on-air. She’s fantastic fun and will add a great edge to the show.”
Before moving to Dubai, Tom worked as a presenter stations including Invicta FM, Southern FM, Power FM, BRMB, Hereward FM, Northants 96 and Capital Life. Dan has done shows for BRMB, Capital Disney, Invicta FM, Southern FM, Chiltern FM and Kerrang! Radio.
Other presenters on the Dubai 92 – which is part of the Arabian Radio Network – include former Hallam and Metro presenter Catboy, who does the breakfast show.
Steve Smith, ARN Chief Operating Officer said: “Developing our content and talent pool across our eight radio stations is a real focus for us in 2012 and this announcement is the first of many we hope to share over the course of the year.”
