Tennessee native and London-based radio presenter Baylen Leonard is joining Chris Country.
From January 2017, Baylen’s radio show The Front Porch will be moving to Chris Country, with two hours of Roots, Country and Americana music every weekend.
Baylen, who’s also a regular on BBC Radio 2, and DJs at country events across the UK, said “I’m really excited to be bringing The Front Porch to Chris Country’s dedicated listeners! Running the gamut from new songs by mainstream artists you know and love, to new artists you might not have heard of yet but will be talking about soon – I can’t wait to explore them all with the audience on Chris Country! “
Chris Country’s Programme Director Chris Stevens is delighted to welcome his latest team member: “Baylen’s enthusiasm for all flavours of country music is so infectious, it’s a pleasure to have him on board.”
The station is now on six DAB digital radio multiplexes having recently returned to the Chester, Wrexham and Liverpool mux.
