Martin Kelner gets weekly Radio Yorkshire show

Former Radio Leeds presenter Martin Kelner has signed up for a weekly show on Radio Yorkshire.

Martin will be on-air each Saturday morning via the DAB station from Leeds, between 10am and 1.30pm starting on August 6th. He recently hosted a few takeover shows after leaving the BBC.

“I’m delighted to have been let loose on prime time,” said Martin. I’m looking forward to helping release the inevitable tension prior to an afternoon’s football, with the tried and trusted mix of popular music, sport, and news updates from outlying areas of Yorkshire such as Kings Lynn and The Phillipines.”

Ahead of Martin Kelner’s return, Radio Yorkshire will see its DAB coverage re­-extend back into areas of Leeds it currently cannot cover. From August 1, residents who have not been able to receive the station since last years Yorkshire MXR closure area will be able to retune their sets via a TX power upgrade.

Director of Broadcasting Sam Brydges “It’s great to have Martin back. The takeover shows were excellent and very well received. We’ve just been waiting for the right moment to get Martin back on the station and it’s even better he can join the lineup on a regular basis.”

“It’s also fantastic our DAB coverage is getting a wider reach, it’s been a frustrating period but this is some very good news for listeners.”
