Ray Clark returns to BBC Essex schedule

There’s a new schedule on BBC Essex from Monday, with Ray Clark making a return to the station.

Ray previously hosted breakfast on the station, before moving to afternoons last year then retiring in the summer. He’ll now host a new weekend show from 9am till 11am Saturdays.

In other schedule changes, early breakfast will see The Early Wobble with Rob Jelly air from 5am till 6am weekdays, whilst Sadie Nine from afternoons will kick off a new morning show with the Nine at Nine feature.

Tony Fisher’s afternoon show has been extended by an hour and will now run from 12pm till 4pm Monday to Friday, followed by current morning show host Dave Monk on drive till 7pm.

Louise Birt, Managing Editor at BBC Essex, says: “We are where Essex comes to talk. With this new-look schedule we’ve created more opportunities for people to get involved with our shows – and set the agendas themselves.

“This is an exciting time for BBC Essex. We’re approaching our 30th birthday next year so wanted to shake up the schedule and go into 2016 with a fresh sound.”
