Former Bauer presenter Rick Houghton has joined UTV’s Signal 1 in Stoke-on-Trent to host the Drive Time show.
Rick has worked in radio since leaving school at 16, working on numerous stations in the North of England. He also spent five years on breakfast at Channel 4 in Dubai.
He takes over from Martin Lowes who has moved to Capital North East to present afternoon drive.
Chris Buckley, Senior Programme Controller at Signal 1, says: “Rick Houghton lives and breathes radio and we’re excited about welcoming someone of his calibre on board for Signal 1 Drive Time. He has a wealth of experience in the industry from being on air to launching stations, and we’re sure our listeners will love his unique brand of presenting.”
Rick was also Director of Broadcasting at the recently launched Radio Yorkshire, and runs his own Liverpool-based film company.
