John Myers is making a short-lived comeback to radio in the Northeast with a week-long cover stint on Sun FM.
The last time he was on-air in the region, using his pseudonym of John Morgan was over three years ago when he appeared on Smooth Radio.
Prior to that John launched Century Radio in 1994 and hosted breakfast for around three years. He’s now a Visiting Professor at Sunderland University and the University of Cumbria and is currently Chairman of TeamRock and the Radio Academy Awards.
John Myers told RadioToday: “I’m looking forward to it. I was first involved in the station in the the late 90’s when I ran Border Radio (one of the previous owners) hiring Simon Grundy, so to return on the breakfast show, and in an area I know well, will be fun to do. I will try not to get too many OFCOM complaints!”
Managing Director of Sun FM Julian Carter says: “Having worked with John a number of times over many years – being his boss for a week, instead of the other way round will be interesting. We’ve got our head of compliance ready to work some overtime but I’m confident our listeners will enjoy the experience.”
John will be on-air 5.30am-10am Monday to Friday from 27th January.
