Paddy makes a returns to Yorkshire Coast

Yorkshire Coast Radio has re-hired Paddy Billington for the breakfast show after he first broadcast on the station 13 years ago.

Paddy left Yorkshire Coast to work at various other stations including Real Radio, TFM and more recently Viking FM in Hull.

Former breakfast show host Steve Jordan has departed to join Viking FM.

Paddy has lived in Scarborough all of his life, and will host ‘Paddy in the Morning’, broadcast each weekday between 6 and 10am.

Speaking of Paddy’s appointment, Managing Director, Chris Sigsworth said “I was pleased to give Paddy his first radio break when he was a fresh-faced 18 year old, and I have watched his radio career blossom. I would struggle to find anyone more passionate about the area than Paddy, which makes him the perfect person to take on the mantle of hosting our Breakfast Show as we get ready to celebrate 20 years on the air.”

Paddy says “Despite working right around the region and beyond, I’ve always lived in Scarborough. I’m totally in love with the town and the whole stretch of coastline Yorkshire Coast Radio broadcasts to. I really couldn’t miss the chance to present the Breakfast Show from my home town. I’ve got a gorgeous little family and I can’t think of a nicer area to bring up my children. My best childhood memories are all on the beach and exploring the rock pools in Scarborough’s South Bay! My Breakfast Show will reflect my passion for the area and be great fun to both present and listen to”.
