Real Radio NW changes breakfast plans
Real Radio in the North West has revealed details of its new breakfast show to launch next week, which is a change from what was previously announced.
The Feel Good Breakfast will be presented by Sam Walker and Lorna Bancroft and replaces the short-lived ‘2 Girls and A Guy’ show which only kicked off in January.
The GMG station said in December that Lorna would join Real Radio network overnight presenter Oli Kemp and previous breakfast team member Debbie Ousbey for the new show, which started in the New Year as a replacement for Ditchy and Salty.
A week into January, it was announced that Sam Walker would leave Key 103 in April and join Lorna and Oli for the show.
Now the station has confirmed that a new show launching on 2nd April will feature Sam and Lorna, with Oli returning to his previous shifts on overnights across the Real Radio network and weekend breakfast on Real Radio NW.
Real Radio Brand Programme Director Mark Matthews told RadioToday.co.uk: “We’ve had the opportunity to develop the new show over the last three months and Sam and Lorna have shown they really understand our thirty-something audience. Those dry-runs have also led me to the conclusion that the pace and feel of the programme will flow better as a double rather than triple header, and therefore Oli Kemp is returning to his weekend breakfast and overnight shows.”
