Radio City puts Dave Kelly on breakfast
Radio City’s three month search for a breakfast co-host has seen the station put its drivetime jock on the show.
Dave Kelly has been at Radio City for three years but will make the move to mornings to join former Juice FM breakfast co-host Leanne Campbell-Power from May 6th.
The station told RadioToday: “The content team’s search to find the right ‘radio husband’ for Leanne has been ongoing since the start of this year with pilot shows and trial runs being conducted with some of the brightest talent in the UK. Despite the extensive search it became clear that Leanne’s perfect partner was right under their nose in current Radio City drive presenter.”
Leanne added: “It’s such an exciting time to be a member of the Radio City family. After 10 years on breakfast radio I’m thrilled to be part of this new show in the famous tower! I listened to Radio City as a child heading to school, now my children will hear me on Liverpool’s biggest station on their school run!”
Chris Rick, Content Controller at Radio City said: “This is a very exciting time for the station. We are now in our 40th Leanne & Dave have great chemistry – it’s going to be a compelling listen!!”
