Radio Lincolnshire adds breakfast co-host
Scott Dalton, breakfast show presenter at BBC Radio Lincolnshire is to be joined by Carla George as co-host.
Carla has been a reporter on the station for the last two years after joining from regional newspapers.
BBC Radio Lincolnshire’s managing editor, Charlie Partridge, said: “Scott is now an established and popular presenter with listeners after taking over the Breakfast Show more than a year ago. Adding Carla to the mix as co-presenter will further strengthen what is already a great listen.
“Like Scott, Carla is hugely passionate about Lincolnshire having made her home in Grantham for a time. Having two people heading the show will open up extra opportunities for exploring stories and issues that matter to the people of the county.
“They have great chemistry together and I’m sure pitting them together will make for a hugely enjoyable show. As well as both having a great sense of fun and a warmth which will resonate with listeners, they are both hugely experienced and respected journalists who won’t be afraid to stand up for people in Lincolnshire and ask the tough questions of the decision-makers.”
Carla added: “I’m thrilled to be helping wake the county up with Scott every morning. I’ve grown to love Lincolnshire since I moved here and together Scott and I are looking to provide a great start to the day for people across the county.”
Scott took over the breakfast show in April 2013 from Rod Whiting.
Scott, who was born in Boston and still lives in the town, commented: “I’m delighted Carla is joining me as co-presenter. We get on really well, but we also have a lot of banter too! I don’t know who will be keeping who in order on air – it could be interesting!”
The station recently hit the headlines with its Lipdub Lincoln, which won a Radio Academy Gold Award earlier this year.
