Elliott Webb is taking over from Howard Bentham as one of the co-hosts of the breakfast show on BBC Hereford and Worcester from next month.
Elliott – who spent years in commercial radio with stations including BRMB and The Pulse – will team up with Toni McDonald on the programme from 3rd November.
Howard Bentham is leaving the station after 10 years on breakfast to join BBC Radio Oxford. Elliott’s mid-morning slot on BBC Hereford & Worcester will be taken over by Malcolm Boyden who currently does a show on the station’s weekend schedule as well as weekday mid-mornings over on BBC Radio Oxford.
The new breakfast show will feature Elliott and Toni between 7am and 9am. Toni will present the 6-7am hour on her own, while Elliott will keep his current 9-10am phone-in hour.
Jeremy Pollock, Managing Editor at BBC Hereford & Worcester, told RadioToday: “This is an exciting new line up for BBC Hereford & Worcester – both Elliott and Malcolm are fantastic presenters who’ve established themselves really well on this station. Better still, they’re both broadcasting to their home patch. They’ll be building on the great work Howard’s done in his time here – Howard’s made a huge contribution to the station over the past ten years, with many memorable stories and campaigns. We wish him well at BBC Radio Oxford.”
